How can people with Parkinson's cope with the varied movement symptoms associated with the disease, such as tremor, slowness and dystonia?  If you have clients with Parkinson’s Disease, this webinar will offer practical, real-world strategies for dealing with these motor symptoms. Dr. Sotirios Parashos will present an informative one-hour PD ExpertBriefing webinar on the topic.

Participants in this web seminar will be able to:

  • List the various motor symptoms associated with Parkinson's disease.
  • Understand the basic biological mechanisms behind these symptoms.
  • Identify the ways in which medications work to ease the motor symptoms.
  • Understand basic principles of managing motor symptoms, using medications and other strategies.


Sotirios A. Parashos, M.D., Ph.D., is a neurologist with the Minneapolis Clinic of Neurology, the Clinical Research Lead at the Struthers Parkinson's Center, a National Parkinson Foundation Center of Excellence, and Clinical Professor of Neurology at the University of Minnesota. Dr. Parashos' research into Parkinson's disease focuses on non-dopa-responsive symptoms such as falls and cognitive dysfunction, the natural progression of Parkinson's disease, and the role of the multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary care in the management of Parkinson's disease. He has co-authored many articles published in peer-reviewed journals, a book on Navigating Life with Parkinson Disease, and has given numerous lectures on Parkinson's disease to professional and lay audiences.
