“Art for Life” program featured in the Alligator newspaper

Our campus newspaper, The Alligator, visited our “Art for Life” program last week and wrote a brief article about how our Parkinson patients meet and make art that is both meaningful and motivational.

Katherine Castle, an Art for Life volunteer who also has Parkinson’s disease, said she doesn’t want to be defined by her disorder.

“I don’t want to be the artist with Parkinson’s disease — I just want to be the artist” she said. “Parkinson’s is part of me, but it’s not all of me.”
