The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center Parkinson’s and other Movement Disorders team is excited to host a free webinar for people with Parkinson’s disease and their families or caregivers. Hear from Ohio State Wexner Medical Center experts on the latest diagnostic tools, research and advanced treatments available to combat movement disorders and improve your quality of life.
Our strong commitment towards patient-centered initiatives is reflected in “Understanding the Disease,” an educational series for people diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease (PD) and their families. This patient-centered initiative aims to provide a quarterly clinical and research update on the most critical innovations in the diagnosis and treatment of PD and a moment of discussion between the OSU providers and the PD community. Topics will range from the diagnostic assessment of parkinsonisms and related disorders to the management of motor symptoms, non-motor symptoms, mood & cognition, and the choice of simple and more advanced therapeutic options, as well as new research developments and ongoing clinical trials.
