Clinical Research Forum: Parkinson's Research in Colorado
Saturday, April 20, 2013, 08:30 AM - 01:00 PM
The Facts: It may take 15 years to develop a potential treatment for Parkinson’s disease • 90% of clinical studies in the US are delayed due to lack of participants • Less than 1% of people with Parkinson’s disease are doing the heavy lifting towards finding a cure or treatment for PD by participating in clinical trials • Parkinson’s research and clinical trials are happening right here in Colorado
The Parkinson Association of the Rockies in collaboration with Colorado Neurological Institute, Davis Phinney Foundation, Parkinson’s Disease Foundation and the University of Colorado invite you to explore the inroads being made in Colorado towards new treatments and therapies that may redefine care for Parkinson’s disease.
By attending the Clinical Research Forum: Parkinson’s Research in Colorado, you will have the opportunity to learn more about available clinical trials for various modalities of treatment including medications, alternative therapies and surgical treatments. Learn how you, as a clinical trial participant, are protected.
Join the open discussions with trial participants and family members about how they decided to participate in clinical trials. Learn how to register for the Fox Trial Finder through a representative from the Michael J. Fox Foundation. Talk with the research coordinators one-on-one to learn more about the available opportunities to join the initiative towards better treatments and the eventual cure for Parkinson’s disease.
