Each year, HAPS offers a full day annual symposium bringing in knowledgeable presenters familiar with the latest Parkinson's research and options to managing the disease. HAPS held its 25th Annual Educational Symposium, Innovations in Parkinson's Disease: Past, Present and Future, on Saturday, May 10, 2014 at the United Way of Greater Houston.
Much has changed in the nearly 200 years since Parkinson's disease was first identified. This year's symposium reflected on major milestones in Parkinson's history, how our understanding and management of the disease has evolved over time, and what the future may hold in terms of defining the disease, better treatment, improved therapies and, ultimately, a cure. HAPS would like to thank the 300 people in attendance of this program including the speakers, sponsors and volunteers who helped make the event possible.
