Paul dedicated so much of his life to helping others, including 30 years of service to Miami-Dade Fire Rescue. Paul passed away almost 3 years ago with the early stages of Parkinson’s Disease. The families mission is to continue Paul’s legacy of giving and help others battle the same disease that Paul fought. Proceeds from the event will go to the Parkinson’s Foundation in Paul’s honor.

Parkinson's disease (PD) is complicated by a number of comorbid psychiatric symptoms that often overlap with the motor and other physical aspects of PD or may be caused by PD medications used to treat motor symptoms (e.g., impulse control disorders and dopamine agonists). In this webinar, Dr. Marsh will focus on the overlap of motor, cognitive, and psychiatric aspects of PD. Additionally, she will describe the features of comorbid psychiatric disturbances, including depression, anxiety and psychosis along with general approaches to treatment.Contact Name:Annie LongContact Email:firstname.lastname@example.orgContact Phone:713-823-1398Event Date Min:Tuesday, September 25, 2018Event Location:5600 W Jones Bridge RdPeachtree Corners, GA 30092United StatesEvent Chapter:Georgia
