Digital Summer Party 2020
Join us for the new online lecture series on Parkinson’s disease!
In the week of 6-10 July 2020, the teams of NCER-PD and ParkinsonNet Luxembourg will host online events on Monday, Wednesday and Friday to inform about the current state of the Luxembourg Parkinson’s Study and give advice to Parkinson’s patients.
This digital lecture series replaces the annual Thank You party of NCER-PD which can unfortunately not take place in its normal format given the COVID-19 circumstances.
In the presentations, Prof. Krüger and Prof. Schwamborn will give insights into the current state of research on Parkinson’s disease. In addition, health professionals from various disciplines will show valuable strategies and exercises for patients to do at home in order to maximize the quality of life.
After each presentation, participants will have the possibility to ask questions to the speaker directly. We also encourage interested people to send in questions in advance via email to parkinson [at] chl.lu which we will direct to the speaker.
The event takes places online via telephone conference on Webex and is completely free of charge. It is not required to be included in the NCER-PD study, everybody interested can attend (patients, caregivers, family members, etc.). All lectures are tailored to the questions and needs of Parkinson's patients.
