April 17 webinar on cognitive impairment and Parkinson’s

Parkinson Society Canada is hosting an hour-long free webinar on Cognitive Impairment and Parkinson’s disease, on Tuesday, April 17, 2012 at 1 p.m. EST.

In recent years, research has identified cognitive changes, such as dementia, depression and psychiatric symptoms, as part of the progression of Parkinson’s disease. This webinar provides an opportunity for both people living with Parkinson’s and health care professionals to recognize cognitive changes and learn how to manage them.

The presenter, Dr. Oury Monchi is an Associate Professor in the Department of Radiology at the University of Montreal. He also directs the Parkinson Cognition Action and Neuroimaging laboratory at the research centre of the Institut universitaire de gériatrie de Montréal. A major goal of his research is the early prediction of dementia in Parkinson’s and how it relates to that found in other neurodegenerative disorders.

You must register, in advance, online at www.parkinson.ca/webinar to participate in this live webinar.

This webinar is made possible through a Canadian Institutes of Health Research Knowledge Translation Grant.
