SD Parkinson Foundation
SD Parkinson's Awareness Online Series
With the recent cancellation of the 2020 SD Parkinson’s Awareness Conference the South Dakota Parkinson Foundation (SDPF) decided to keep the educational theme for the month of October by providing an online webinar series for individuals with Parkinson’s disease, caregivers, and family members. The series will cover an array of topics pertaining to Parkinson’s disease and will be free and open to the public. We will also record all presentations and have available to download on the SDPF website. Zoom links for meetings will be sent via email once you RSVP.
