Annual General Meeting (2022) Registration

We invite you to join us for our Annual General Meeting (AGM) on Saturday, April 22, featuring guest speaker, Dr. Silke Appel-Cresswell.

Dr. Silke Appel-Cresswell is a movement disorder neurologist, trained in Germany, London, UK, and Vancouver, BC. She is an associate professor (grant tenure) for Medicine/Neurology at the University of British Columbia (UBC) and holds the Marg Meikle Professorship for Research in Parkinson's disease (PD).

Dr. Appel-Cresswell discusses cognitive decline in Parkinson's disease. Symptoms of mild, moderate, and advanced cognitive impairment will be discussed, as well as research on the impact of lifestyle interventions that may prevent or offset cognitive impairment in Parkinson's.

Many people in the PD community often have questions about which lifestyle interventions are helpful in preventing or delaying cognitive impairment. In exploring the efficacy of lifestyle interventions, Dr. Appel-Cresswell discusses the extent to which evidence is validated for cognitive training, neuro-protective and neuro-degenerative delay diets, and exercise.

A Q&A session will follow the talk.
