University of Missouri Health Care News Releases
Have You Or Someone You Know Been Diagnosed With Parkinson's? MU Neurologists, Neurosurgeon Provide Answers With Free Event

COLUMBIA, Mo. — Physicians with University of Missouri Health Care’s Movement Disorders Program will offer a free seminar about Parkinson’s disease from 8:30 a.m. to noon Saturday, Aug. 6 at the Courtyard by Marriott, 3301 LeMone Industrial Blvd. in Columbia.

The seminar, entitled Mid-Missouri Parkinson’s Disease Patient and Caregiver Conference, will provide information concerning surgical and non-surgical treatment options, non-motor issues that affect patients with Parkinson’s, such as cognitive function, depression and pain, and new medications for treating the disease.

Speakers for the event include Irving Asher, M.D., a neurologist and director of MU Health Care’s Movement Disorders Program; Terry Rolan, M.D., a neurologist at MU Health Care; and Thorkild Norregaard, M.D., a neurosurgeon at MU Health Care.

“Patients with Parkinson’s disease and loved ones who care for them can be overwhelmed because they undergo a major change in lifestyle,” said Asher. “This free program is designed to help them better understand the disease and how it affects different people in different ways.”

Breakfast and lunch will be provided at the event.

For more information or to register for the conference, please call (573) 882-6139 or visit www.muhealth.org/parkinsons.
