The microbiome of Parkinson's Disease


Voice and Swallowing Problems in Parkinson's Disease


Does the Dopamine Loss in Parkinson's Disease Change the Structure of the Brain?


Each topic will be discussed by two experts; one from a laboratory research perspective, and one from a clinical, or patient care, perspective.  Each attendee will participate in disussions on all three topics.
The group sessions will be followed by a lunchtime presentation by:


Dr. Thomas Montine, a Parkinson's disease researcher and Director of the Pacific Udall Center at Stanford University. 


Mr. Bill Bucklew, Parkinson's disease patient, athlete, and founder of UnCorked Adventures.


The event is free, but registration is required because seating is limited. Lunch will be provided, and free parking is available close to the meeting location.
This program will be supported by a grant from the Parkinson’s Foundation and support from the American Parkinson Disease Association.
