Parkinson’s conference

People with Parkinson’s disease and caregivers are invited to a free conference 8 a.m.–1:30 p.m. Aug. 23 at the Holiday Inn Executive Center, 2200 Interstate 70 Drive SW.

“The Parkinson’s Disease Patient and Caregiver Conference” will focus on the emotions and well-being for patients and caregivers, latest medical developments, and an explanation of deep-brain stimulation.

“By attending the conference, patients and their loved ones can have a better understanding of their condition and its management,” said Irving Asher, assistant professor of neurology at the School of Medicine and director of MU Health Care’s Movement Disorders Program.
