Cómo Navegar en el Mar del Párkinson
Sábado, 24 de octubre, 1:00 p.m. hora de Nueva York
Presentador: Ramón Rodríguez, neurólogo

Las personas que padecen enfermedad de Parkinson (EP) se hospitalizan 50% veces más que sus semejantes. Y, una vez internados, generalmente tienen hospitalizaciones más prolongadas. El neurólogo Ramon Rodriguez compartirá con nosotros información y herramientas prácticas para que usted pueda abogar por su salud dentro y fuera del hospital. Una de esas herramientas es el  programa Aware in Care del National Parkinson Foundation (NPF). Esta iniciativa incluye un kit con información y recursos que le ayudarán a comunicarse más fácilmente con su doctor y con el personal del hospital. La meta: ¡Navegar en la dirección adecuada hacia el cuidado de su salud!

Para mas información sobre el kit visite:  www.awareincare.org/espanol, llame a la línea de ayuda de NPF en 1-800-473-4636, opción #2 o envíe un email a helpline@parkinson.org.
