Congratulations to our 2023 Movement Disorders Fellowship Graduates!

Congratulations to Dr. Heather Heiser and Dr. Antonia Pusso for completing their Movement Disorders Fellowship. Dr. Heiser will be starting practice as a movement disorder and general neurologist in Seattle, Washington. Dr. Pusso will be continuing her training with a Palliative Fellowship at the University of Colorado. We wish them the best of luck in their next journey and look forward to hearing all of the great things they are doing.

Dr. Brooke Heffernan and Dr. Matthew Woodward have been promoted to their second year of fellowship and we are excited to welcome two new first-year fellows on July 5, 2023. Be sure to welcome Dr. Ollesch and Dr. Timmerman if you see them in the clinic.

We also want to send congratulations to Dr. Michelle Fullard who has been awarded the NIH K-12 Building Interdisciplinary Research Careers in Women’s Health. This prestigious, two-year award is designed to support junior faculty who are interested in a career in women’s health research. Way to go, Dr. Fullard!

Finally, congratulations to Dr. Jeanne Feuerstein and Dr. Matthew Wooward for their poster presentation at the Samuel Belzberg 6th International Dystonia Symposium.

We invite you to help the Movement Disorders Center honor 10 years of providing our annual education day to the Parkinson’s community by joining the faculty and staff this fall.

Our free, hybrid event will be on Saturday, October 28 from 9:00 am-2:00 pm and the Anschutz Health Sciences Building or virtually via Zoom. The event is designed for people with Parkinson’s disease, care partners, and families. Healthcare professionals and anyone interested in learning more about Parkinson’s Disease are welcome.

The symposium is given by a team of experts and aims to update the community about Parkinson’s disease. We are excited to have some of our agenda announced on our event page. You’ll also find a link to register.

One of the ways we are celebrating our anniversary is by creating a top ten list of things that people with Parkinson’s disease and their care partners wish they knew sooner. We’d love to hear from you! Enter your answers via our event page and we’ll create an anonymous list of the top ten answers.
