  • Parkinson's in the Hospital: Why Being Prepared Matters

    Saturday, September 28, 2019
    9:30 a.m. to 12 p.m.

    Please join us for this educational program to learn how to stay safe in the hospital!

    Research has found that three out of four people with Parkinson’s do not receive medications on time when staying in the hospital, and that people with PD in the hospital have a 1 in 4 chance of complications because of medication errors. With more frequent hospital visits and a high sensitivity to the timing and dosing of PD medications, people with Parkinson’s face great risks in the hospital.

    There is no charge to attend, but registration is required.
