An Update on Our Annual Events
The Movement Disorders Center hosts many annual events. The safety of our attendees is always a priority. However, COVID-19 brings additional concerns. Because of this, we are constantly re-evaluating the safety of our events.
In light of this, we have postponed our annual Huntington’s Disease conference. Please save our new date of September 26, 2020. We hope to host this event in person, but you can look for updates on the Events page. We will provide informatino in a timely manner.
At this time, we are still going forward as planned with our 7th Annual Parkinson Disease Conference on October 3, 2020. We will continue to keep you updated on any changes.
We know these annual events are important to the community and will work hard to make sure you receive the benefits they offer.
Congratulations to Dr. Christina Vaughan and the Neuropalliative team. Dr. Vaughan and her team received the Fast-Track Grant Response: COVID-1 award. She received full funding from the Adria Foundation.
This will allow Dr. Vaughan to proactively reach out to her patients and their families in the face of COVID-19. It will also provide temporary tele-health equipment for those who need it. Her hope is that reaching out to patients will provide the following benefits:
- Prevent unneeded trips to the emergency room
- Prevent symptoms from getting worse
- Identify families in need of food and/or supplies
- Identify emotional or spiritual concerns.
Again, congratulations to Dr. Vaughan and her team!
