Community Lecture Series

Part of the mission of PFNCA is to improve the quality of life for PD patients and their families. One way this is done is through the Community Lecture Series. Every month in Maryland and Virginia, PFNCA holds a free community lecture. These lectures feature a variety of speakers, from therapists, people with Parkinson’s disease and doctors, to staff members from organizations that deal with PD and PWPs, such as PAN and PFNCA. This lecture forum allows for asking questions and discussing the topic of the evening.

In the past speakers have come from the National Institute of Health, Johns Hopkins University, George Washington University Hospital, Parkinson’s Action Network and the National Agency on Aging, in addition to many other places.
