New Director Ancillary Therapeutic Program Joins Parkinson’s Institute and Clinical Center

Barbara Luedtke joins the Parkinson’s Institute and Clinical Center as the new Director Ancillary Therapeutic Program, October 19, 2015 and brings to the Parkinson’s Institute and Clinical Center over 25 years of experience working with patients with neurological disorders including Parkinson’s disease.  Ms. Luedtke’s care model aligns with the Institute--Parkinson’s is a lifelong disease process and requires the support of medical, research and rehabilitation services.  At the Institute, a single location, comprehensive and evidence based services are provided to meet the needs of each patient. Ms.Luedtke has experienced the benefits of early intervention in Parkinson’s; the importance of patient understanding of the disease process, recognition of the benefits of exercise and how this gives a level of control to the patient to manage the disease and live a more normal lifestyle.  Also, those with more progressive disease process therapy will improve their functional levels from the introduction or re-introduction of therapy programs such as LSVT BIG and other therapy treatment interventions. 

Barbara received her Master of Science (MS), Physical Therapy degree from Barry University in Florida and her Master of Public Administration (MPA), concentration in Finance, from Norwich University in Vermont.  Barbara has worked in numerous settings across the country and in the UK, including hospitals, acute rehab, skilled nursing, outpatient and home health.
