With more frequent hospital visits and a high sensitivity to the timing and dosing of Parkinson's disease (PD) medications, people with Parkinson’s may face great risks in the hospital. Research has found that three out of four people with PD do not receive medications on time when staying in the hospital. When this occurs two out of three will experience unnecessary complications. Please join us for this free educational program to learn how to stay safe during a planned or unplanned hospital stay!

There is no charge to attend, but registration is required. This program is open to people with Parkinson's, their family, friends and the community.

This program is supported by a grant from the Quantum Foundation.
