Our strong commitment towards patient-centered initiatives is reflected in “Understanding the Disease,” an educational series for people diagnosed with Parkinson 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.


Each quarterly meeting will provide an update about new treatments available, currently enrolling clinical trials, and a question and answer session. Guest speakers will consist of neurologists specialized in movement disorders, neurosurgeons, cognitive neurologists, physical, occupational and speech therapists, dieticians, advanced practice providers, social workers, and other health care providers involved in the treatment of PD. A patient panel will provide critical guidance and assist with choosing and developing the most relevant topics.
