Virtual ( Zoom )

Veterans Webinar Banner

The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) estimates that 110,000 veterans have Parkinson’s disease (PD). While the exact cause of Parkinson's is unknown, research suggests that its cause can be linked to genetic and environmental factors. This webinar will discuss how, for some veterans, environmental exposure and toxins can increase the risk of PD, and the role head trauma plays in the development of PD.
