New York, NY –
November 30, 2015 (PRWEB) November 24, 2015 -- The American Parkinson Disease Association (APDA) is pleased to announce a new Webinar/Teleconference program, “Parkinson Disease-Spotlight on Treatment Advances” on Tuesday, January 26, 2016 (12:00PM–1:00PM ET; 11:00AM–12:00PM CT; 10:00AM–11:00AM MT; 9:00AM–10:00AM PT). This program, funded by AbbVie, will provide an expert perspective on the latest treatment advances for Parkinson’s disease.
“The importance of timely information cannot be overvalued when you are living day to day with a chronic disease”, said Leslie A. Chambers, President & CEO of APDA. “Many Parkinson’s patients do not see their clinicians on a regular basis, and frequently only when they have symptom management problems. This teleconference will provide a scan of the current treatment options for Parkinson’s disease patients, newly released products and a brief review of potential promising therapies in the pipeline.”
David G. Standaert, MD, PhD, Chairman of APDA’s Scientific Advisory Board and John N. Whitaker Professor and Chair of Neurology at The University of Alabama Birmingham School of Medicine will present this program designed to provide people with Parkinson’s, care partners, family members, and healthcare providers an important overview of the options available today.
