Step out of the heat and into the HAPS Summer Lecture Series during the months of June, July, and August! Since 2011, Houston Area Parkinson Society hosts this fun summer-themed event to provide participants with an opportunity to hear experts present on topics relevant to improving everyday life with Parkinson’s disease.
Each session includes one educational lecture and is immediately followed by a movement lab featuring a different exercise discipline. The movement lab portion offers the opportunity to get moving and try something new. As always, these events are free of charge, but only take place in the summer. Summer gear and Hawaiian shirts welcome! Previous sessions have included: Therapeutic Arts, What's New in Parkinson's Research, Sleep, Cognition and Parkinson's, Depression and Anxiety, Speech and Swallowing, The Gut Microbiome and more...
As always, these events are free of charge, but only take place in the summer. This year's Summer Lecture Series will be held in-person! It's a great opportunity to see friends, learn more, visit with our sponsors, and have fun!
Registration is required and now open. Each person should register separately. Please click the session(s) you want to attend to register.
