The 3rd Annual Colorado Community Conference on Saturday, May 7 at the Westin Westminster Conference Center was a huge success! Over 300 people braved the cold and rain to come together to support local research on Parkinson's disease. The conference, brought to you by the Parkinson Association of the Rockies, focused on research, medications and tips & tricks through seminars and panel discussions.
Conference also included a Clinical Research Resource Fair. This Fair provided an opportunity for conference participants to speak directly with clinicians and physicians who currently have open research trials as well as individuals who have participated in past and/or present clinical research trials.
Presentations will be uploaded as they come in from speakers.

When the doctor first utters the words hospice or palliative care, many people freeze. No one wants to hear those words used in reference to their loved one. It’s scary and often families have no idea what this means. Instead of feeling relieved and empowered, families often feel anxious. Many people don’t actually know what palliative care is and how it can help a loved one achieve a better quality of life.
