COVID-19 ALERT: Important Updates and Information for Patients

Every April during Parkinson’s Awareness Month, I host an Annual Patient Education Program. As you know, due to COVID-19, we were unable to host this year’s program.

Throughout the month, I sent a series of educational videos to help support my patients impacted by Parkinson’s disease. Education is key to understanding a PD diagnosis, knowing your PD treatment options, and learning how to best navigate life with PD.

We are all embarking on a new normal. Virtual communication is a part of that new normal. But one of my favorite parts of our annual program is taking your questions and our dialogue about the topics we’ve discussed. Using this format, I would like to continue that tradition of Questions and Answers.

Thank you all for submitting your questions. I will summarize the information and share my answers. Make sure to check back as this information will be a useful resource in helping all impacted by Parkinson’s disease.

Stay safe and well, and please know—we are here for you.

Thank you,
Dr. Jill Farmer
