After several years of good symptom management, controlling Parkinson’s disease may become more challenging. In this program, participants will learn how Parkinson’s symptoms may change over time and explore surgical options to help manage symptoms. Participants will also learn about the work-up process for consideration of Deep Brain Stimulator Surgery (DBS), now available at the Minneapolis VA. 

Attend in-person or watch the program at-home via Zoom: This program will be in-person at the Wilder Foundation (St Paul, MN). You have the option of attending our in-person program or you can watch the webinar from home via Zoom. Please tell us which option you prefer during the registration process.

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.
