Parkinson's Disease Symposium

The Movement Disorders Section of the Department of Neurology and Neurotherapeutics presented the 2015 Parkinson Disease Patient and Caregiver Symposium on September 12.

The symposium is a half-day event where patients and caregivers interact with providers in a supportive environment to answer critical questions related to Parkinsons disease. There are educational lectures addressing various aspects of the disease along with input from ancillary services such as speech and physical therapy.
