  • Health-Promoting Behaviors, Hope and Health-Related Quality of Life in Persons Impacted by Parkinson

    Speaker Amy Forbes, PhD, RN.
    Town Hall - October 16, 2018, 4:00-5:30pm, Lake Area Technical Institute, room 124, Watertown, SD

    Amy completed a study to  determine the relationship among hope, health-promoting behaviors, and health-related quality of life (HRQOL) in persons with Parkinson’s disease.
    The incidence of Parkinson’s disease is high in Midwest and Northeast regions of the United States. Parkinson’s disease affects motor, non-motor symptoms and has a variety of complications. Parkinson’s disease is related to genetic and environmental factors. HRQOL decreases in Parkinson’s disease, thus the effect of hope and health-promoting behaviors on health is crucial as the disease advances.
