In collaboration with ParkinsonTV and the University of Rochester, NeuroLife Online now offers a special quarterly program in which we will stream an episode of ParkinsonTV and then follow with a live Q&A session with a movement disorder physician. This program combines socialization, education, and a casual interactive session with an expert to ensure you can translate the knowledge into everyday life!
Irene H. Richard, MD, neurologist and movement disorder specialist, provides neurological care for patients with Parkinson’s disease and related conditions and her research program focuses on the psychiatric aspects of these illnesses. She is the author of numerous scientific articles, editorials and book chapters and has been the recipient of career development awards and research grants, including one from NIH to lead a multi-center clinical trial evaluating the treatment of depression in PD. She served as the Senior Medical Advisor for the Michael J. Fox Foundation, and was the recipient of MJFF’s 2011 Langtson Award for her valued contributions. She has given lectures and chaired workshops and symposia at national meetings including the American Academy of Neurology and The World Parkinson Congress. Dr. Richard’s efforts have brought new clinical and research attention to the previously overlooked area of mood disturbances in PD.
