Dear PD ExpertBriefing Viewer:
As a person with Parkinson’s and advocate for the Parkinson’s community, I found last month’s online seminar on swallowing and dental challenges invaluable.
I had no idea that these programs were viewed by such a wide audience; during the last seminar, more than 1,100 people joined from all 50 US states and from more than 20 countries. Reaching people with PD who need this information is why it is so crucial that these programs continue. If you agree, please consider supporting PDF.
Here are a few of the reasons I want this type of programming to continue:
- Practical Tips: Each program gives real tips (like taking medication at a certain time before dental visits) that I use in my daily life with Parkinson’s.
- Expert Knowledge: PDF’s speakers are the best of the best! I live in a small Midwest city without PD-specific programs or specialists so this information is of particular interest to me. No matter where someone lives, they should have access to these experts and now, we all do.
- Educating Health Professionals: PDF offers free CEUs to health professionals who view these online seminars. This means that the dedicated health professionals who care for people with PD are also getting the best information.
These programs are improving lives like mine, and hopefully yours or those of your patients. But in the current funding environment, it’s harder to keep them going. With your help, the irreplaceable knowledge from PDF’s online seminars will continue to be available to us.
Won’t you please support us now?
