PN Education Series
Parkinson’s Nebraska Educational Programs
Parkinson’s Nebraska believes that education allows people with Parkinson’s and their families to be their own advocates. We are committed to making educational opportunities available across the state. That is why we are working with our local and national partners to provide education that is responsive to the needs of the community.
There will not be an Educational Series presentation in August. See you in September!
Past Educational Programs
All of our educational programs are recorded for viewers to access at any time. See past presentations below:
April- Innovations in Deep Brain Stimulation with Dr. Bhatti
We partnered with Abbott Labs and Dr. Danish Bhatti from the Center for Movement Disorders at Nebraska Medicine to bring the community information and a discussion about Innovations in Deep Brain Stimulation.
Dr. Bhatti is a movement disorder neurologist and the Assistant Professor of the Department of Neurological Sciences and Co-Director of the Multidisciplinary Parkinson’s Disease Clinic at the University of Nebraska Medical Center.
May- The Financial Impact of Covid-19 with Alan Hauschild
The coronoavirus pandemic has created a great deal of change during the last two months. Alan Hauschild, CFP, CLTC, shares information on the legislation changes (CARES Act) and financial impact for the 2019 and 2020 tax years, particularly as it relates to long-term care planning for people with Parkinson’s.
June- Parkinson’s Disease: More than Motor Symptoms
Dr. Sachin Kapur joined the group to share information about some of the non-motor symptoms of Parkinson’s disease – hallucinations and delusions. Around 50% of people with PD experience hallucinations or delusions over the course of the disease.
We were not able to record this presentation. However, there are paper handouts of the presentation available. Please email Amber at email@example.com with your mailing address to be sent a copy. We also plan to host this presentation again during our monthly support group – stay tuned!
