What is PWR!
NeuroFit Networks DBA: Parkinson Wellness Recovery | PWR! is a 501(c)(3) tax exempt
nonprofit founded in September 2010 by Dr. Becky G. Farley to translate cutting edge research
on exercise and brain change into real world health care paradigms TODAY for individuals with
Parkinson disease. This PWR! Exercise4BrainChange® model begins at diagnosis and continues
throughout the life of the individual. The goal is to coordinate and integrate medical/rehabilitation
goals with community-based exercise programs and wellness resources. It allows individuals to
receive a continuum of care that begins at diagnosis with a PWR! Therapist and cycles to PDspecific
community exercise and wellness programs then back to a PWR! Therapist – for life. It
provides education and ongoing monitoring to allow individuals to use their full potential to get
better and stay better.
