I copy news articles pertaining to research, news and information for Parkinson's disease, Dementia, the Brain, Depression and Parkinson's with Dystonia. I also post about Fundraising for Parkinson's disease and events. I try to be up-to-date as possible. I have Parkinson's diseases as well and thought it would be nice to have a place where updated news is in one place. That is why I began this blog.
I am not responsible for it's contents, I am just a copier of information searched on the computer. Please understand the copies are just that, copies and at times, I am unable to enlarge the wording or keep it uniformed as I wish. This is for you to read and to always keep an open mind.
Please discuss this with your doctor, should you have any questions, or concerns. Never do anything without talking to your doctor. I do not make any money from this website. I volunteer my time to help all of us to be informed. Please no advertisers. This is a free site for all.

UT Medical Center to host Parkinson’s symposium
WATE 6 On Your Side : June 21, 2017
KNOXVILLE (WATE) – The University of Tennessee Medical Center is educating East Tennesseans on Parkinson’s Disease.
The center will be hosting a symposium June 30 from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Bridgewater Place, 205 Bridgewater Road.
The illness is a movement disorder which becomes worse over time. According to PDF, doctor’s do not know a cause for the disease. People with the illness suffer from the decrease of the production of dopamine in the brain. This causes the inability to control movements.
