Ask the Expert Webinar: Depression and Parkinson's
When most people think of Parkinson's disease, motor symptoms like tremors and slowness of movement are typically the first to come to mind. However, mental health changes can be a significant aspect of the disease as well, with at least half of all people with Parkinson's experiencing depression and/or anxiety.
Join us on May 12 as Dr. Fidel Vila-Rodriguez, Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychiatry at the UBC Faculty of Medicine, and the Director of the Non-Invasive Neurostimulation Therapies Laboratory and Schizophrenia Program, discusses the symptoms of depression and how to manage them. He will also go over current research on depression and Parkinson's, including an opportunity to participate in a clinical trial for treatment.
