Veterans and PD: What You Need to Know

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

– 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. ET

Program Description

The VA estimates that 110,000 veterans have Parkinson’s disease. For some veterans, developing PD can be associated with exposure to Agent Orange or other herbicides during military service. Join us as we learn more about the latest treatment advances from Parkinson’s experts and hear from veterans who are now living with Parkinson’s disease. We will explore the resources and support services that veterans have access to through the VA and the Parkinson’s Foundation.

This program is open to people with Parkinson's, their family, friends and the community. There is no charge to attend, but registration is required. Register online using the link below or call 770-450-0792.
