Parkinson's NSW is committed to keeping you informed and as such offer the Parkinson's Information Seminar roadshow throughout New South Wales.

The information seminars are suitable for people affected by Parkinson’s, their families and carers, medical professionals, care workers and anyone wanting more information about Parkinson's disease.

Parkinson’s 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 more than 110,000 people living 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.



FAQs

Please note: By registering for the seminar, you will be automatically signed up to receive updates about Parkinson's NSW. Don't worry, you can always unsubscribe (we hope not - we promise, no spamming!).

What can I bring to the seminar?

Come along ready to meet new people in your community. We are pleased to be able to deliver to you the latest in treatment options, research break throughs, carer tips and so much more.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the seminar?

We aim to be environmentally sustainable for our events. You do not need to print your confirmation email. Just let us know your name at the door.

Do I have to book if I want to attend?

Yes bookings are essential. We provide tea and coffee, morning tea and a light lunch and as such are required to notify the venue of numbers attending usually a week prior to the event. For this reason, bookings are required, we'd hate for you to miss out on the delicious and warm scones with jam and cream (an example of what might be available). Register as early as you can, these are very popular events and may fill quickly.

What is the refund policy?

We understand things come up from time to time and as such we can refund your tickets one day out from the event.
