MENOMINEE — The M&M Area Parkinson Support Group will meet Thursday at 10 a.m. at the Harbor’s Retirement Community, 1110 10th Ave.

The topic this month will focus on the value of what people eat, how people eat it and when people eat it. Nutrition, along with exercise is most important in the health of any Parkinsonian. Ideas for making meals more nutritious yet appealing help to make meal planning a easy part of the day.
