Dr. Tianyu Jiang, Associate Chief Physician (PLA Hospital in Beijing), is working to develop PD-specialized programs and care in his community. Dandan Liu, a nurse on his team, accompanied Dr. Jiang to learn about integrating rehabilitation with Parkinson’s specific exercise.

They also shadowed Dr. Claire McLean, PWR! Faculty, at her practice in California. Their hope is to provide group programming and develop additional resources for their patients in China.
