Auckland University's School of Population Health and Park- inson's New Zealand are conducting the research and they need another 25 Aucklanders to be interviewed. They are looking for people with dogs and or cats who also have Parkinson's. One of the participants, Wil- liam, was diagnosed with Parkinson's 10 years ago. He and his family got their dog Leo in June last year. William says having Leo means he gets plenty of exercise running around after the dog''. His daily walks with Leo also give him an opportunity to meet and talk to other dog owners. Many people living with Parkinson's find themselves becoming isolated and lonely as their condition makes getting out and socialising more difficult. Caring for Leo also means Wil- liam has a routine to his day because he has to get up and feed him every morning. People living with Parkinson's can find it difficult getting motivated and can find planning their day a challenge. Research has shown many health benefits associated with owning a pet for people living with other illnesses but the benefits for people with Parkinson's has not yet been investigated. Contact Parkinson's New Zea- land on 0800-473-4636 for infor- mation on taking part in the study. Expert on strokes lecturing A free public lecture by an Australian medical expert on strokes is on at Auckland University. Professor Stephen Davis from Melbourne University is also direc- tor of the Melbourne Brain Centre at the Royal Melbourne Hos- pital. The lecture will be held at Auckland University's Business School, 12 Grafton Rd, on February 3 at 6pm. See www.neurological. org.nz for details.
