The two-day APDA Virtual Parkinson’s Conference: Educate, Empower, Engage will be geared towards people with Parkinson’s disease, their care partners and family members and will feature expert presentations, breakout sessions, panel discussions, and more. The program will run from 9am-12:40pm PT on February 15th, and from 9am-12:30pm PT on February 16th.
The conference will feature more than 25 incredible speakers, from top medical experts to people with PD, ready to share their stories with lots of opportunities for live Q&A.
Both days will be set up with concurrent sessions that let you choose the topics you’re most interested in and activity-focused breakout sessions where you can sing, dance and draw! One session will be bilingual for participants interested in Spanish-language resources.
Some of the topics covered will be:
- Less common symptoms of PD
- Anxiety and cognitive behavioral therapy
- Pros and cons of DBS
- Care partner perspectives
- GI issues & PD
- The science behind PD and singing
- And much more!
Also incorporated will be several “How APDA Can Help: Virtual Meet & Greet with APDA Staff” breakout sessions for participants to meet some of their local APDA staff. These sessions will be led by the APDA Regional Directors.
