Parkinson’s Disease Community Conference
Empowerment and education will be the driving theme on April 20th at Cedars-Sinai’s Parkinson’s Disease Patient Community Conference in Los Angeles. The free event is from 7:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Harvey Morse Conference Center at Cedars-Sinai.
Michele Tagliati, MD, FAAN, director of the Movement Disorders Program, Echo Tan, MD and Elliot Hogg, MD, of Cedars-Sinai’s Movement Disorders expert team will provide updates on the latest clinical advances and research in Parkinson’s disease, plus new medical management and how a healthier lifestyle can help manage the disorder.
"What we want to do is provide patients and their families new ways to monitor their well-being," said Michele Tagliati, MD, Vice-Chairman of the Department of Neurology. "As our knowledge about Parkinson’s disease expands, it is our duty and mission to keep the public up to date when it comes to the importance of quality-of-life issues."
Participants will hear about the early signs of Parkinson’s, new breakthrough medications, DBS advances, and current clinical research at the medical center.
In between sessions, we will take short “Active” breaks to show our patients and caregivers fun and safe exercises to do at home.
