More than one million Americans are affected by the life-altering movement disorder known as Parkinson’s Disease. If you or a loved one are struggling with this disease, or just want to learn more, this lecture is for you.
This lecture is led by Dr. Joseph Quinn, Medical Director of the OHSU Parkinson Center, and the Veterans Administration’s Parkinson’s program, as well as Vice Chairman of Research at the OHSU Neurology Department. His current research is focused on cognitive decline in Parkinson’s.
Dr. Quinn will discuss the disease symptoms, the root of its causes, how common it occurs, and whether it can be prevented. You will also learn about the disease from the perspective of a Parkinson’s Disease patient.
April is Parkinson’s Awareness Month. Please join us for this informative presentation, Thursday, April 18, at 1:00 PM in Zidell Hall.
