Janet Hamburg memorial service slated for April 2

A public memorial service celebrating the life of professor of dance Janet Hamburg is set for 3 p.m. Saturday, April 2, in the Spencer Museum of Art auditorium.

As a researcher and teacher, Hamburg specialized in therapeutic movement to help people facing movement challenges. She was especially involved with local and national Parkinsonís groups after developing an acclaimed exercise program for people with Parkinsonís disease, originally distributed internationally by the Parkinson's Disease Foundation in New York City and recommended by major Parkinsonís foundations.

The Janet Hamburg Dance Scholarship has been established at KU Endowment.

The memorial is sponsored by the Spencer museum and the Department of Dance in the School of the Arts
