The UTSA Neurosciences Institute, is having an upcoming lecture that we think might be of interest to the Parkinson’s and movement disorder patient community. The lecture is on April 10th and is titled, “A Strategy for Slowing the Progression of Parkinson’s Disease.”
The speaker, Dr. Surmeier, is an international authority on fundamental mechanisms of Parkinson’s Disease from Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine in Chicago. He’s very involved in Michael J Fox Foundation and is Director of the famed Morris K. Udall Center of Excellence in Parkinson’s Disease research at Northwestern. He’ll be discussing the bench to bedside process involved in his current research, which is the basis of a phase III clinical trial. Some PD patients might know of it.
This lecture can be profoundly empowering for patients and their loved ones. There is a reception prior to the event, and Dr. Surmeier is always eager to connect directly with patients.
