Get Involved: Join PDF on Tuesday, April 20 for “What’s in the Parkinson’s Pipeline?” 

What better way to learn the latest in Parkinson’s research than to hear it directly from the experts? You can…by joining PDF online or by phone on Tuesday, April 20 from 1 PM – 2 PM ET for “What’s in the Parkinson’s Pipeline?”. During this one-hour PD ExpertBriefing, leading researcher and clinician David G.
