Webinars

Newly Diagnosed Webinar Series

Everyone responds in a different way when told they have Parkinson's disease. For some, the diagnosis may be a relief. Others, however, may find themselves in denial and need some time to accept the diagnosis. As you adjust, understand that experiencing a wide variety of emotional reactions is common. You will likely have questions about how to cope and what the future may hold. This webinar series will attempt to answer some of these questions.

If you have been newly diagnosed with Parkinson's disease, we invite you to join Parkinson Society British Columbia (PSBC) and special guests for a 4 week webinar series every Friday in November.
