Today, Amy Carlson, a Davis Phinney Foundation Ambassador who has been living with Parkinson’s for eight years, shares her interpretation of one of Wayne’s poems, The Body, through dance.

After you watch her performance, be sure to leave a comment and let Amy know what you think.

Amy is constantly looking for creative ways to share her experience with others and give back to the community that has given her so much. To connect with Amy about your experience living with Parkinson’s or serving as a care partner, click here.
