Houston Area Parkinson Society offers an educational program developed specifically for those who have been recently diagnosed with Parkinson's disease. The three-hour program is designed as a "Parkinson's 101" course for individuals who have been diagnosed within the past three years and their family members or friends who want to learn more about the disease. Given the current COVID-19 situation, all in-person programs have been moved to a virtual platform. 

The program is presented by a local neurologist and HAPS Medical Advisory Board member. The small group of 35-40 participants provides an intimate learning environment and allows plenty of time for questions and answers.

The program is free of charge.

Participants can attend as many sessions as needed within three years of their diagnosis.

Pre-registration is required. Check back for details and dates for the 2021 sessions.
