While Parkinson’s disease (PD) may be more frequently diagnosed among males than females, research shows that it presents itself differently in women.
In this webinar, Movement Disorder Specialist, Dr. Michelle Fullard will address gender differences in the incidence of PD, as well as risk factors and the potential role of estrogen. In addition, she will discuss how Parkinson's specifically affects women, as well as how women differ in cognitive and sleep issues, medication side effects, and mental health. Lastly, she will explore gender differences in the carepartner experience, and representation in Parkinson’s disease research. A 10-minute Q&A will follow.
