About this event

Basics and Beyond

Whether you were recently diagnosed, going through transitions as your symptoms change, or are a family member of someone with Parkinson's disease, this lecture will help you piece together an understanding of this complex neurological condition.

90,000 people in the US live with this disease and every 6 minutes someone receives this diagnosis. Worldwide disability and death due to Parkinson's is rising faster than any other neurological disorder. This new data determined that the prevalence is nearly twice what was previously reported.
