PD Shimmers Creator Honored

PD Shimmers is first and foremost a show created to raise awareness of Parkinson's Disease. The Parkinson's Community of the Upper Midwest recognized this by honoring the creator of the show by bestowing him with the Paul M Silverstein Award. Pictured here is Mike Justak as he receives the award from the Struthers Parkinson's Center's Head of Neurology Martha Nance. To introduce Justak, Dr. Nance informed the audience on how PD Shimmers uses 58,000 lights so as to shine one light for each newly diagnosed person with Parkinson's Disease in the past year.
