Join the North East Parkinson’s Research Interest Group for a day packed with exciting opportunities to speak with researchers, health care professionals and others interested in Parkinson’s research.
The day, organised by North East Parkinson’s Research Interest Group, moves away from the traditional presentation style, and aims to involve all attendees in themed round table discussions, each chaired by a researcher.
