For veterans living with Parkinson's disease (PD), thinking and learning changes can be a concern. These cognitive challenges can affect not only the person with Parkinson’s, but also their care partners, families and friends.

Join us to hear from Parkinson's disease experts and advocates about strategies and treatments to help prevent and slow cognitive decline.
