Hello Everyone –
We welcome you and your family or friends to come to the Partner’s in Parkinsons event which is being held on Sunday, October 12, 2014 at the Washington Hilton.
In June, we were fortunate to have attended the Partners in Parkinson’s (PiP) event in NYC, put on by the Michael J Fox Foundation, Abbvie, and The Davis Phinney Foundation.
It was a day of education and learning to live well with Parkinson’s. There are many topics which are a part of this day long educational seminar including: Why a Movement Disorder Specialist is important, how to work with your Movement Disorder Specialist, importance of research and clinical trials, living well with Parkinson’s disease, information from medical professionals from our DC/MD/VA area along with people living with Parkinsons and more! Not only are there great speakers and topics, there is an exhibitor area which includes support groups, exercise opportunities, medical centers, and health care service providers.
The event is free. Breakfast and lunch are included.
