Webinar Schedule

Webinar Schedule

We believe education empowers people with Parkinson’s and their families to be their own advocates. That is why it’s part of our mission to make education accessible to everyone in all communities across the state.

Our hope is that by providing a “one stop shop” for Parkinson’s online programs and webinars, more people with Parkinson’s and their families in communities all across the state will gain access to educational resources.

Please see the dates of the scheduled online programs and webinars scheduled in 2020. Keep checking back as more are added!
