The Ventura Parkinson’s Disease Support Group is pleased to invite our members, friends and the public to attend our first meeting of the New Year. Wayne Pickerell of SC3 Research Group – Neurosearch, will help us start the New Year with an educational overview of Parkinson’s Disease followed by a question and answer period where we will have the opportunity to ask Wayne questions about Parkinson’s Disease and share some of our own experiences of how we cope with the challenges of Parkinson’s Disease.
Wayne Pickerell has been involved in Parkinson’s Disease for over 19 years and has managed Clinical Research for Neurosearch for more than 15 years. Wayne will give us an overview of Parkinson’s Disease and current treatment options. He will also update us on new treatment options and discuss clinical trials and the progress being made in the search for a cure for Parkinson’s Disease.
