Professor trains with The Parkinson’s Disease Foundation

Helping to care for the growing population of people living with Parkinson's disease

Normadeane Armstrong, Ph.D., A.N.P., Associate Professor, Molloy College, participated in The Edmond J. Safra Visiting Nurse Faculty Program at the Parkinson's Disease Foundation (PDF).

"This 40-hour accredited "train the trainer" program is designed to improve nursing care in Parkinson's disease by training nurse faculty leaders who in turn, prepare their students to fight the disease on the front lines. By bringing this knowledge back to their students, she and her fellow Scholars will help PDF to prepare the next generation of nurses to care for the growing population of people living with Parkinson's disease," said Jessica Higgins, Communications Assistant Parkinson's Disease Foundation (PDF).  

At this training, Dr. Armstrong was joined by fellow faculty from undergraduate nursing programs across the US who were immersed in academic instruction, hands-on experience with people with Parkinson's, and mentorship from nurse specialists at nationally recognized movement disorder centers.
