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.
