Parkinson's Disease Patient and Family Symposium

*This is a virtual program, taking place live, using the online Zoom platform. Instructions on joining the webinar are provided after registering.*

Parkinson's Foundation and Northwestern Medicine Parkinson's Disease and Movement Disorders Center present: Parkinson's Disease Patient and Family Symposium

Northwestern Medicine Parkinson's Disease and Movement Disorders Center provides innovative, multidisciplinary care for patients and families affected by Parkinson's disease and other movement disorders. The Center's care team works to promote health, education and support for patients. It also supports caregivers, family members, healthcare providers and the community. We continually strive to meet the needs of the Parkinson's community in a variety of ways. In doing this, we have adapted our annual symposium to a virtual setting for the safety and accessibility of the larger Parkinson's community.

This program is open to people with Parkinson's, their family, friends and the community.
