 Young Onset Parkinson’s: A conversation on our unique needs

Tuesday May 26th, 12:00pm EDT (noon)


Parkinson’s disease is generally thought of as a disease of older people occurring most frequently in people over the age of 60. Although for 20% of people with Parkinson’s this diagnosis is received before the age of 50 and for 5-10% it was received before the age of 40.


Young Onset Parkinson’s Disease (YOPD) has many unique needs and challenges, particularly concerning family and employment.


In this live broadcast we will discuss the experience of living with YOPD with special guests:
