wHolistic™: Racial Inequities in the Treatment of Parkinson’s Disease | Mar. 12, 2021 | 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM PST

Racial injustice has been at the forefront of public debate, but did you know these inequalities have dire stakes in the medical space? For example, in the PD and movement disorder community, African Americans are often diagnosed later and with greater disease severity. Join us for an important conversation on uncovering the racial inequalities within Parkinson’s treatment with Casey Halpern, MD and Disep Ojukwu, MD, MBA, MPH authors of a recently published article in the International Movement Disorder Society Journal, hosted by movement disorder specialist facilitator Indu Subramanian, MD.

wHolistic™: Parkinson’s Neuroimaging | Mar. 15, 2021 | 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM PST

Brain imaging tools let clinicians “see” inside our skulls to study physical structures and chemical changes in the brain. What changes can they see in someone with Parkinson's? Dr. Jon Stoessl, head of neurology and co-director of the Djavad Mowafaghian Centre for Brain Health at the University of British Columbia has long been at the forefront of this area of research. His studies use positron emission tomography (PET scans) to study PD - from biomarkers to treatments to mechanisms of the placebo effect.

wHolistic™: Cell Based Treatments for PD | Mar. 17, 2021 | 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM PST

The future of Parkinson’s treatment is focused on ways to modify or stop the disease at the cellular level and this high-tech, futuristic science which includes research on repairing damaged brain circuits is being led by research pioneer Patrick Brundin, MD, PhD. Dr. Brundin was among the first to describe how abnormal movement of alpha-synuclein spreading from cell to cell in the brain, called the “prion-like” hypothesis, causes the cellular damage in Parkinson’s and will discuss how these potential therapies might be used to interrupt or correct this damage.

Online Communities: YOPD Connections | Mar. 23, 2021 | 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM PST

“You’re too young to have Parkinson’s!” Loneliness, misunderstanding, and invisibility are all too common in the experience of living with Young Onset Parkinson Disease (YOPD), but we can change that. If you are living (or have lived) with YOPD, you are invited to join a newly-forming online community of others who understand your experience of living with an “old man’s disease” in a young person’s body. Join the conversation as we build the connections, community, and resources we need to live better with YOPD.
