Welcome to the HARDY Parkinson’s Group Web Site. The HARDY group is a support group that is based in Fort Collins, CO. We meet in the evening to accommodate people who cannot meet during working hours. The group meets on Mondays approximately once every six weeks at the Council Tree Library in Fort Collins. This schedule has been varying based on room availability.  This web site should have the latest information on the next meeting.

This site will serve to provide notice for the next meeting and keep an archive of the presentations from previous meetings. Also included will be occasional blog posts, pointers to upcoming events, and links to other resources. Please feel free to explore and give feedback.
