The Down East Journal (05/05/17)

DOWN_EAST_JOURNAL_LOGO.JPG

This week on the Down East Journal, people with Parkinson’s disease have a promising new treatment.  We go to Oriental where tandem bikes are being used to help slow the progression of this neurodegenerative disorder.  Plus, there are deserts in eastern North Carolina, food deserts, areas with limited accessibility to fruits, vegetables, and other healthy foods.  We talk about locally affected areas and how folks in Kinston and Greenville are trying to turn that around.  And, an upcoming theater performance called Warrior Women tells the story of being female on active duty in the military through dance, song and spoken word.
