About the Event
The Parkinson’s Association of Greater Daytona Beach is partnering with Dementia Family Pathways in Panama City Beach & Tallahassee Memorial Healthcare to bring a virtual Parkinson’s Wellness Expo to our community. We would like to partner with as many PD support groups as are interested so we can all support each other during these uncertain times.
We have a great line-up of speakers and topics secured. Experts in the field of Parkinson's disease from across the country will be with us for the afternoon from Tallahassee Memorial, Healthcare, University of California San Francisco, Mayo Clinic Jacksonville, and Mt. Sinai School of Medicine in New York City. These knowledgeable physicians will cover hot topics such as new and developing treatment approaches, holistic interdiciplinary care for patients and caregivers affected by PD, and new sleep research. At 3:00 CST, our experts will have a panel discussion with Q&A from our virtual audience.
I am also happy to share that John Zells will be our Master of Ceremony. He will interact with Alaine Keebaugh in a quetions and answer interview and take Q&A from our viewers. Our NOTE:
