As a retired elementary school principal (San Diego City Schools), Patricia Tisdale-Schroeder has worked with numerous agencies over the years. She is proud to be affiliated with the PASD Board of Directors, a group that is dedicated and committed to providing services and programs for Parkinson’s patients and their families.
In 1991, Patricia’s late husband was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. She contacted Mary Mowry, the Association founder, had a long conversation and a couple of days later received a large packet of information in the mail.
Over the the next 11 years, she and her husband, Dr. William K. Tisdale, were so very well served by the association. They received ongoing support and encouragement as Parkinson’s became increasingly significant in their lives.
Patricia was honored to be invited to serve on the Board of Directors. She says it is an opportunity to pay back to the PASD and community-at-large for the many benefits she and her late husband received from the association.
