Viewers React to PD ExpertBriefing on “Understanding the Progression of PD”

I loved this briefing, as I knew nothing about progression of PD prior to today (I was diagnosed ten years ago!). No doctor would even address the issue of progression with
me, stating only, "each case is different.”

Even though the information was informative and well presented, I found myself being discouraged by the statistics given.

The questions submitted were great! Maybe even more time could be allotted for questions.

Absolutely SUPERB discussion of exceptionally technical and scientific materials in a most highly accessible, informative, educational, and entertaining manner. The epitome of how to deliver scientific material to an audience that does not necessarily have any prior exposure to either the general scientific research paradigm or to the specifics of PD research.
