Volunteer Physical Therapists and Organizations Supporting Our Affiliated Instructors

Volunteer Physical Therapists

Members of  the PD Gladiators Metro Atlanta Fitness Network depend upon referrals from many doctors and allied health professionals to inform people with Parkinson’s disease about the benefits of exercise for PD patients and the availability of this unique network of classes adapted specifically for them. There are too many of them to thank individually, but we would like to offer a special note of gratitude to the physical therapists who have been volunteering their time to help participants in Network classes exercise safely and supervise volunteer Doctor of Physical Therapy students from local universities.
