After many years of good symptom management, Parkinson's disease may become more challenging. Learn how Parkinson's symptoms may change over time and new strategies available for managing them. Together we will hear from Parkinson's experts as they discuss cutting-edge technology used in the diagnosis and treatment of Parkinson’s disease, including: advances in DBS and focused ultrasound, wearable devices to help track PD symptoms, the latest in tremor technology, speech and communication aids, and more!
