Why are some Parkinson’s drugs only available in certain countries? What do researchers really mean when they talk about a “cure” for the condition? How can people with Parkinson’s make their voices heard?
These are just some of the questions explored in ‘Straight Talk’, a new five-part webinar series created by the European Parkinson Therapy Centre in Italy. The series, which is available on YouTube, sees expert panellists tackling a range of issues while viewers are encouraged to tune in to comment and ask questions.
“The webinars were created by people with Parkinson’s, focusing on questions that they felt were not being answered,” says Alexander Reed, director of the European Parkinson Therapy Centre. “I am grateful for the response of the international Parkinson’s community in getting behind this project and for our moderators, who are doing excellent work running the events.”
