Parkinson's Boxing Featured in the Buffalo News - Taking the Fight to Parkinson's
We were pleased to be featured in a Buffalo News article this past week. This article highlights our progress in the fight against Parkinson's and also our new ability to have Independent Health help pay for the cost of our treatment. Here is an excerpt from the article:

When Cropp says that, he’s usually referring to medical people doing “exciting and innovative things.” That could be a doctor, pharmacist, physical therapist or chiropractor thinking outside the box.
He’s not typically thinking of someone like Eoannou." Read the rest of the article on the Buffalo News by clicking here.
