Empowered LIVE!

Friday, August 26, 2022 - 5:00pm

Location: Holiday Inn at the Campus, Manhattan, Kan.

Empowered LIVE! is an evening to celebrate living well with Parkinson's disease. The featured speaker for 2022 is Bill Bucklew, Founder and Chairman of Uncorked Adventures, whose mission is to help people live better with Parkinson’s disease while working together to find a cure.
 
Bill learned he had Pd in 2012, after seven years of misdiagnosis, at the age of 43. By modulating various lifestyle factors, such as exercise intensity, nutrition, optimism and activism, sleep, and social interaction, Bill has found incredible success in managing his symptomatic progression with the disease. Bill now dedicates his time to unique campaigns and sharing his experiences, helping people find they own informed and empowered path in living with Parkinson’s.
 
In 2017 Bill formed the all-volunteer not-for-profit Uncorked Adventures. Prior to dedicating his life to help people live well with neurological conditions, Bill worked as Chief Innovation Officer for Berkshire Hathaway’s The Pampered Chef.
