Insight into Parkinson’s 2020, Day 2, Part 2 – Conference notes

Insight 2020 is the largest online conference for people with Parkinson’s disease (PD), their caregivers, and those who work with the PD community. It took place this year on April 1-3, and covered a wide range of topics, from living positively to the latest PD research. We at Stanford Parkinson’s Community Outreach attended all three days of the virtual conference and took notes on some of the talks that seemed most interesting or relevant to our audience. Highlights from Day Two of the conference are below. Due to length, we have split the notes into two separate blog posts. Below is Part 2 of Day 2 of the conference.
