Event Date:

Time Zone: 
(GMT-08:00) Pacific Time
Short Description: 

Presented by Parkinson’s Disease Foundation, as part of their PD ExpertBriefings series.

Full Description: 

Are your "invisible symptoms" your most roblematic?  Immense advances have been made in the treatment of motor symptoms of Parkinson's.  Yet our understanding of the non-motor symptoms first described by James Parkinson in the 19th century has lagged behind, with advances in the past ten years just beginning to expand our knowledge. 

At the same time, these symptoms are often the most challenging for people living with Parkinson's, their care partners and their doctors.  If treated effectively, non-motor symptoms - ­particularly lesser known symptoms such as fatigue, vision problems, sweating and crying ­- can be the most important determinant in improving quality of life in Parkinson's. 

Find out more about what you can do to take charge of these symptoms, by joining PDF and Dr. Chaudhuri for a one-hour PD ExpertBriefing discussing the topic.
