Viewers Comment on June’s “Complementary Therapies” PD ExpertBriefing

Dr. Melanie Brandabur was her usual excellent self.  I have heard her at our Chico, CA, group and at the Sacramento PANC conferences.  She is practical and informative.

This is my first briefing. (My sister has a new diagnosis.)  I was less interested in the particular subject today than in seeing the format and the level of expertise.  I was very impressed, and will attend future briefings (and be better prepared to ask questions), as well as look at archives.  Thank you.

Wonderful program — hope we can get more funding for many of these issues.

Very well done and informative.  It really helps to hear things from the doctor directly.  I will think differently now about this topic and that is a good thing.  Thank you again.

Patti Richardson Meese and James M. Patterson from last year’s Clinical Research Learning Institute class are shocked that it has been almost a year.  Almost a year of spreading the word … thanks PDF.
