If you or a loved one is living with Parkinson’s disease (PD), you are surely aware of its complexities. Among these, one that is often overlooked by both neurologists and people with Parkinson’s disease is dental health. Why is it so important to address dental health issues? Poor dental hygiene can affect nutrition and increase risk for stroke, cognitive impairment and weight loss. Parkinson’s disease often poses unique challenges in establishing and maintaining an effective dental treatment strategy.
Depression is one of the major, and most common, challenges for people living with Parkinson’s disease (PD). Everyone feels sad from time to time and it is normal to experience stress when faced with a difficult disease such as Parkinson’s. However, the sadness that is part of being human can become a significant problem if it crosses into the realm of clinical depression and is left untreated.
If you have Parkinson's disease, are a Caregiver, or looking to learn more about Parkinson's disease, this is the event for you. We have a panel of local and internationally renowned researchers, physicians, therapists and others who bring their expertise in hopes of shedding light on this very important topic. The Presentors for 2018 are still being determined.
