A one-day event will be held on Wednesday, Oct. 23, to discuss Parkinson’s Disease (PD) and its effect on women.
“Women and PD: Closing the Gender Gap,” a one-day program designed specifically for women living with PD, is the first of its kind in the Augusta area. This free, educational event focuses on the needs of women with PD. Research shows they are more likely to have poorer quality of life than male PD patients, with early access to movement disorder specialists and services being key. The program includes lunch, followed by separate sessions for female PD patients and the men in their lives.
The program is being presented by the Augusta University Movement and Memory Disorders Center of Excellence and the Parkinson’s Foundation Georgia. It will take place at the Doubletree Hotel at 2651 Perimeter Parkway in Augusta, Georgia, from 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.
