Get the facts about Parkinson's Disease
More than 1 million people in the U.S. have Parkinson’s disease, a movement disorder that progressively worsens. An estimated 60,000 are diagnosed each year.

Neurologists suspect many more people may have Parkinson’s, but they don’t know what it is. Unfortunately, it is very difficult to diagnose. There is no official test to determine if someone has it; rather, physicians conclude it is Parkinson’s when other conditions are ruled out and a patient responds to medication used to manage the disease.

Recognizing the symptoms important but what happens next? A person diagnosed with Parkinson’s often has lots of questions and frequently encounters a daunting amount of misinformation.

Hear from the Ashley Rawls, M.D., an expert at the Norman Fixel Institute for Neurological Diseases at UF Health, which is a Parkinson’s Foundation Center of Excellence. Registration is required for this Zoom webinar.
