Saturday, October 4, 2008 - 10 am to 12 pm
The purpose of this Symposium is to say thank you: for your time, for your effort, and for wanting to make a difference in the lives of other patients with Parkinson’s disease (PD).
Research participation is a key component to fighting and winning the battle against PD. We would like honor our portion of the 2,300,000 men and women who participate in research.
