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.
