 About this Conference:

Patients begin presenting with symptoms of Parkinsons Disease in primary care settings.  However, the symptoms of Parkinsons can be seen in many other disease presentations.  With so many patients being misdiagnosed, additional knowledge and tools are needed to strengthen initial diagnosis and set proper expectations for treatment.  This half-day symposium will address brain aging and what to expect, signs and symptoms of early onset Parkinsons disease, Parkinsons dementia, and drug therapies for Parkinsons patients.
