We are very excited that Dr. Nicole Dietz will be speaking at our next meeting on March 4th. What an opportunity to learn more about managing your PD medical experience in such an intimate setting with a neurologist. While I asked her to address how to make the most of our neurologist appointments, I’m sure there are other questions you’d like to ask, too.
Mark the calendar and then go back and highlight the day of March 4th just to be sure. The time is the usual 1pm -2:30 pm.
