Subj: April is Parkinson's Awareness Month

Hi All,

April is Parkinson's Awareness Month. The Parkinson's Organizations are promoting their interests ... fund raisers & what have you ...

Our local British Columbia Parkinson's Disease Association has Fund Raisers; an Annual Raffle, Parkinson's Dance, Tulip Sale, *The SuperWalk, and AGM; as well as Support Groups and several Education Meetings and are in the process of launching a Parkinson's Society, B.C. web site ...

While I am an active "participant" in all of the above, I also wanted to do something "more" ...

I've gathered hyper-links, bookmarks, and URL's for Parkinson Resources on the WWWeb and I plan to post them in bunches (one topic per day) on this List in my own personal attempt to raise Parkinson's Awareness around the world ...

I encourage you all to jump in and critique, improve, support these efforts in whatever way you see fit ...

Stay tuned for WWWeb Resources ...

my best to all of you ... murray

"Surfer Beware!"
Relevant insightful advice from Joel R. Cooper, editor in chief of The Medical Reporter

"Is This Site Reliable?"
FDA staff and others familiar with Internet medical offerings suggest asking the following questions to help determine the reliability of a Web site:

The Health on the Net Foundation Code of Conduct (HONcode) for medical and health Web sites addresses one of Internet's main healthcare issues: the reliability and credibility of information.

On April 28th, 1999, the Science Panel on Interactive Communication and Health (SciPICH), an independent body convened by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), released its final report, Wired for Health and Well-Being: The Emergence of Interactive Health Communication.

The Panel is no longer active, and this site is maintained for historical purposes only.

Seems "funny" to say this, but way back in the spring of '98...

A little reminder that the ready kindness of Jerry Finch was the catalyst that really started this all!

And... guess who provided the inspiration... my cyber - sis!

The "Undernet" or "WebRings" but none for PD

Opportunity is knocking at your door!!!

Gail, my dear, take a bow. You are responsible for the whole PWP webring scenario!

Jerry was PWP Ringmaster... and NuCountry chat host... and taught HTML...

And... Janet Paterson, then made it possible by graciously donating the initial HTML Coding of 31 pages on this site ...

A New Voice

thanks jp! i hope i don't muck it all up! ... mc

Last but not least... where would a "Tweakmeister" be without a coupla great "Tweakettes"? ... my loving wife, Brenda, and my cyber-sis Gail put up with my wacko humor and my funny ideas only so long and then they quietly straighten me out! I hope y'all enjoy the results...

Ain't "Teamwork" truly Grand!
