Please join patients, caregivers and professionals on Friday, April 3rd for our thirty-seventh annual Parkinson’s disease symposium.


Innovations and advances in the field of Parkinson’s disease continue to occur at a rapid rate.  This year’s symposium is designed to educate and inspire people with Parkinson’s and those who care for them to learn to face the many challenges that occur once a PD diagnosis is made.


To help you through your Parkinson’s journey, this year’s program will include a panel of speakers to provide you with the tools necessary to live a healthy life as you Power Your Way over Parkinson’s disease.


Topics will include the psycho/social challenges facing those with PD and their caregivers, Parkinson’s 101 for those newly      diagnosed or just wanting to know a little more about Parkinson’s, surgical options available to those with Parkinson’s disease, and tools to make life a little easier as you live a healthy life with PD. 


Included in the days activities will also be a continental breakfast, a delicious boxed lunch, a resource fair and movement and music breaks to keep you alert and having fun through the day. 


You will also have an opportunity to mix and mingle with others facing the challenges of Parkinson’s disease as we learn and laugh together.

Green Lawn Church of Christ is located just inside West Loop 289 on the South Side of 19th Street. The event will be in the Activities center near the far south side of the building (adjacent to Lubbock Christian University).
