  1. Elvira Eardley - Thrash

    Regarding the 22 Annual Parkinson’s Disease Symposium – is this symposium open to the public?
    My husband is newly diagnosed and we are interested in attending. If we may attend what do we have to do and is there a cost involved? If it is not open to the public then can nurses attend?
    Any and all information will be appreciated .

    Thank you.
