What Can I Expect at the 2020 Care Partner Summit?

As we rapidly approach the 2020 Care Partner Summit | Cumbre Para Cuidadores, now taking place on May 16 virtually, we are getting excited to learn with you!

At this year’s Summit, we will focus on the unique journey of a care partner, with our theme: Planning for the Unpredictable Path of Parkinson’s Caregiving. A timely topic during the COVID-19 pandemic, our speakers and care partners are ready to share their insight and encouragement to those caring for someone living with Parkinson’s disease (PD). We recognize the hard work that goes into caregiving and we want to create this space for them to share their life lessons, learn from each other and grow in their self-care skills.
