Patient Education and Research

Educational Programs
Educating individuals with PD, their families, and the general public is an important activity of the PD&MDC. Each spring, the Jane C. Wright Symposium on living with PD draws a large crowd of patients and caregivers who are eager to learn about advances in research, alternative and traditional treatments, and other relevant topics. The Center offers other, more intimate educational programs throughout the year to patients and families with newly diagnosed PD, and with parkinsonian syndromes and other movement disorders.

Research on new treatments is a critical component of the three-fold mission of the PD&MDC. Patients who meet criteria for enrollment in clinical trials of drugs not yet on the market may enroll in these programs.
