e3- educate, empower, energize 2016

Date: 09.15.2016

Our 4th Annual e3 educate, empower, energize conference on Saturday, September 10 at the Hyatt Regency Aurora - Denver Conference Center was a home run! 

Tim Hague Sr., winner of The Amazing Race Canada captivated us with his story of his triumphant win! He made us laugh and he sure did make us cry! Tim was the perfect way to kick off a day of empowerement as he left us knowing that we can "live our best lives". 

Following Tim, we had a jam-packed day where we challenged participants to: 

-educate themselves about nonmotor symptroms and learn techniquest ot overcome those symptoms

-energize themselves and express themselves through the use of movement and creativity

-empower themselves through reminders of how important self-talk and self-care are to their well-being

We can't thank our committee, our day-of volunteers and our community for helping make this one of our most successful events to date! Thank you!

e3- educate, empower, energize 2015

Date: 09.15.2016

On October 9th, at the Denver Marriot Tech Center, over 400 individuals attended the Parkinson Association’s 3rd Annual e3 conference to be educated, empowered and energized through a number of topics that ranged from exercise to care partner collaboration. We were overwhelmed by the positive responses we received from attendees, “What an enjoyable day! We met so many lovely people and left with a lot of information!”

From the evaluations, we found that participants walked away with a deeper understanding of Parkinson’s disease and its many symptoms. They also came away with specific tools to live vibrant and healthy lives with Parkinson’s.

They were educated, “I learned that I need to stop saying, I can’t!”

They were empowered, “So empowering to have such outstanding speakers

and wonderful support for the Parkinson’s community!”

We are deeply grateful to our e3 presenters, who donated their time and knowledge to provide our community with helpful tips and tricks for thriving with Parkinson’s. The success of this conference is due in great part to the e3 Committee members; for the many hours they dedicated to creating a powerful conference. Thank you also to the day-of volunteers who ensured the conference ran smoothly.
