Parkinson’s disease is a progressive neurological condition which affects the brain’s ability to control movement and may also be associated with other symptoms including mood, depression and anxiety. There is no cure.

In Australia, every hour of every day someone is diagnosed with Parkinson’s. There are 80,000 people with Parkinson’s across all age groups. Whilst the majority of people affected are over 60 at the time of diagnosis, 20% are of working age and 10% are under the age of 40.

The education seminar series provides updates and discussions from local Neurologists, Exercise Physiologists, Neurological Nurses, exercise groups, GP's, Geriatricians, finance advice and guidance and many more professionals.
