Boxing Program Helps Parkinson's Patients Fight Back 

WJBF-TV’s coverage of our Neurology Boxing Day! Chair Dr. Jeff Switzer and COE Director Dr. Julie Kurek give AMAZING interviews, as do two of our program’s PD patients, and Suzanne Denmark of Day One.


Day One Fitness has a boxing program. It recently held an event called Neurology Boxing Day. It was a chance for Parkinson’s patients to become the coaches while their doctors became their trainees. Neurologists from Augusta University were on hand to witness the benefits of the program.
