Medication options for Parkinson’s disease are constantly evolving and vary for each individual. Choosing medications depends upon many variables; including motor fluctuations, symptom variability and other existing health issues. In this web seminar, Dr. Rajesh Pahwa will share treatment options on the horizon within the next two years, and explains the best candidates for these new therapies when they become available.

Participants in this web seminar will be able to:

  • Describe new treatment options available in the next two years; and,
  • Understand who would be the best candidates for the new therapies.
