Thank you to everyone that attended the January installment of the 2021 PAA Webinar Series, Parkinson’s Journey from Despair to Hope. The initial diagnosis of Parkinson’s Disease can be overwhelming and depressing. Presented by Vevelyn P. Wilson and sponsored by Acadia Pharmaceuticals and Amneal Pharmaceuticals, this webinar explored practical ways to move past the dread of diagnosis and move forward with a spirit of hope as the PD journey continues.
