Join PDF, via phone or online, on Tuesday, April 20 at 1:00 PM ET for What’s in the Parkinson’s Pipeline?, the fifth event in our six-part series of PD ExpertBriefings.

This one-hour seminar, led by David G. Standaert, M.D., Ph.D., of the University of Alabama at Birminghan, will discuss the new therapies being studied for Parkinson’s and the process by which they are developed.

Register for this PD ExpertBriefing

What’s in the Parkinson’s Pipeline? will be presented both as a webinar (web-based seminar) – where participants can watch a slideshow presentation online and hear an audio presentation either through their computer’s speakers or by calling a toll-free number – and as an audio-only presentation – for those who prefer to listen in by calling the toll-free number (provided at registration).

Participants joining the live session will have the opportunity to ask Dr. Standaert their own questions during the last 20-30 minutes of the presentation.  This PD ExpertBriefing will also be available on the PDF website for up to one year after the live event.

About PD ExpertBriefings and Other Online Programs
The PD ExpertBriefings Series is just one part of PDF’s Online Educational Programs, which are designed to provide people with PD, families and health professionals with first-hand access to the leaders in Parkinson’s care and research.  PDF has launched these programs due to continuing demand from people with Parkinson’s and their families for up-to-date research information and practical advice for living with Parkinson’s.

PD ExpertBriefings is a six-part educational series, scheduled to run on an every-other-month basis until June 2010.  See the full schedule by visiting our Upcoming Online Educational Events section.

In addition, PDF offers recordings of all online educational events in this series.  To watch past events from the comfort of your own home, please see our Past Online Educational Events.

This series has been made possible by educational grants from Novartis Pharmaceuticals Corporation and Teva Neuroscience.
