Partners in Parkinson’s has opened a video gallery online to help educate people about the disease and to support services to Parkinson’s patients worldwide. The group is also planning to host information events in two U.S. cities this year.
The gallery’s aim is to bring essential information to patients that can help improve their care at every stage of Parkinson’s. The events carry a more personal touch.
“I feel more comfortable . . . more knowledgeable, more connected and more hopeful,” said a participant at a New York event in 2016. “Thank you for a powerful day.”
This year, the live events that bring information, educational tools and resources to patients will be in Grand Rapids, Michigan, and Orlando, Florida, according to a press release.
Online video gallery
The online gallery at the Partners in Parkinson’s website can be accessed at any time.
Its videos include stories by Parkinson’s patients and caregivers, and talks with healthcare professionals and researchers working on the disease.
