The World Parkinson’s Program has created multiple educational brochures, available in 22+ languages, about Parkinson’s disease that are available for free. Through our educational materials, we aim to increase the awareness of Parkinson’s disease globally. In addition, our educational materials can help improve self-management for those with Parkinson’s disease.
We have many lectures, by Dr. A.Q. Rana, on Parkinson’s disease and related complications available in multiple languages. Dr. Rana covers topics in great detail such as: Caregiving for Parkinson’s Disease and Treatment of Parkinson’s disease.
Throughout the year, we host free educational and informational seminars in community centres, religious centres and other locations. These seminars cover a variety of topics, such as women and Parkinson’s disease, treatment of Parkinson’s disease, etc. Included in these seminars are exercise sessions, group discussion, mental health sessions and mindfulness/meditation.To see if there is an educational seminar happening near you, please view our Events calendar today. If you would like to host a live educational seminar in your community, please contact us today!In addition to free educational seminars for the general public, we have also started hosting educational conferences for family physicians. The purpose is to better equip family doctors with the skills and knowledge to treat individuals with Parkinson’s disease. The conference sessions are conducted by neurologists and other healthcare professionals that specialize in Parkinson’s disease. Our first conference was held in 2019. Please view our Events page to find out when the next conference will be happening.
We have an overwhelming constant demand of educational material in local languages and as a result we are continuously developing and providing educational material to all corners of the world. Please become part of developing and delivering team to help improve quality of life for Parkinson's patients globally.
