Join us on October 28 at noon for the next webcast in our weekly series, McGill Cares, designed to support informal caregivers. During candid, 30-minute interviews with leading experts, Claire Webster, Alzheimer Care Consultant and Founder of the McGill Dementia Education Program, will explore topics related to caring for a loved one with dementia.

Navigating the Journey of Parkinson’s Disease

Dr. Ronald Postuma, Professor of Neurology at McGill University, is a clinical researcher and movement disorders neurologist who treats patients with Parkinson's disease and related disorders at The Neuro. His research interest focuses upon Parkinson's disease, particularly on detecting early stages of disease, examining the impact of non-motor symptoms on disease subtype and prognosis, and testing new treatments for non-motor manifestations such as sleep disorders. Dr. Postuma co-developed Parkinson’s Disease – An Introductory Guide, with the McGill University Health Centre Patient Education Office.

Dr. Postuma will talk about the symptoms and evolution of Parkinson’s disease and the importance of education. He will provide insight on how to navigate the disease as a patient, and discuss what caregivers need to know in order to provide proper care and support.

This free webcast is open to all. We would like to thank the Zeller Family Foundation for sponsoring this episode of McGill Cares.
