Expert Briefing: PD & Medication - What's New

Wednesday, October 6, 2021 | 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. ET

There are many medications to help improve the quality of life of people with Parkinson’s disease (PD). However, people respond to medications differently. What works for one may not necessarily work for another. Learn about the advances in Parkinson’s treatments for motor and non-motor symptoms and where we are on the path to precision medicine.
