High Tea: Parkinson’s Disease 101*
April 24 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Parkinson’s disease is a complex neurological disease whose trajectory can vary greatly from person to person. In this presentation we will discuss the causes and signs of PD and how it is diagnosed. You will learn about both the motor and non-motor symptoms of Parkinson’s disease, understand treatment options, and learn tips, tools, and resources available to those who are impacted by Parkinson’s disease.
Jennifer Gillick is the Program Director at the Northwest Chapter of American Parkinson’s Disease Association (APDA). APDA Northwest’s mission is to provide the support, education, and research that will help everyone impacted by Parkinson’s disease live life to the fullest. This dual mission of helping people live a better today, while we also fight for a better tomorrow, is unique in the Northwest. As Program Director, Jen is responsible for providing families with information, education, support, and referrals to local resources.
