Parkinson’s Disease and You Symposium

The Parkinson’s Disease & You Symposium, which started in 2009, is an all-day annual event that attracts people from throughout Michigan and Ohio, regardless of where they receive care. At the Parkinson’s & You Symposium, you can receive up-to-date information given by leaders in the field and connect with other people and families who are living with the condition. The University of Michigan Udall Center of Excellence for Parkinson’s Disease Research funded the last two years of the Symposium; the U-M Surgical Therapies Improving Movement (STIM) Program funded previous programs. To be notified of future events, please join our email list.
