Bloomsburg Music Therapy has partnered with the Lewisburg YMCA at the Miller Center to offer a new program for people with Parkinson’s disease to improve speech intelligibility, increase vocal intensity, improve respiration and swallowing, provide a source of social support in a fun and engaging setting. The program, offered completely free of charge to all participants thanks to a community grant from the Parkinson’s Foundation, continues its virtual manifestation with a new quarter opening for registration and beginning Wednesday, July 7, and will begin a new quarter of In-Person programming in August.
