Parkinson’s disease (PD) research participation can take many forms outside of clinical trials or drug discovery. But did you know that fitness trackers, popular wrist-worn devices, can also play a big role in Parkinson’s research? The Parkinson’s Foundation invites people with PD, loved ones, families, and healthcare providers to join us for a special presentation by Sarah Ingersoll, RN, MBA, and Kris Mendenhall, Parkinson’s Foundation Research Advocate, on the topic of wearable fitness trackers in PD research. Learn about Ms. Ingersoll’s research into how fitness trackers help refine treatment approaches for people with PD and the experiences of individuals with PD who have participated in her studies.
There is no charge to attend, but registration is required.
