Veterans and Parkinson’s: Exploring the Multidisciplinary Approach to Care

 | 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. CT
(Check-In starts at 9 a.m.)

For many Veterans living with Parkinson's disease, one of the most common needs and challenges is maintaining their independence. We will hear from Parkinson's disease experts and discuss how to access treatment services through the VA Healthcare System. 

Join us as we discuss what a multidisciplinary approach to care looks like, as well as alternative and recreational therapies that provide a more complete approach to the care of a veteran.
