My husband had Parkinson's disease, and before he passed away last year, we found all the different topics in Neurology Now to be valuable. We often passed it along to other Parkinson's patients, who always enjoy reading it.

I continue to receive both printed and digital copies of the magazine because I am still active in the Columbia Parkinson's support group.

Your recent issue had yellow letters on a white background. For senior citizens or those with vision problems, this combination can be very difficult to read. The light green text in the brain diet feature and the light italic text in the sample menus were also hard to read.

I hope you'll take this into consideration when designing future layouts.

Thank you for an excellent magazine. It is much appreciated by me and our Parkinson's community.
