Rush Copley Presents Parkinson’s Fall Program
(Aurora, IL.) – Deborah A. Hall, M.D., PhD, a movement disorder specialist with the Parkinson’s disease and Movement Disorders Center at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago, will present a program focusing on the nature of falls in Parkinson’s and other movement disorders at a free program on Thursday, July 31, from 6 to 8 p.m. at Rush Copley Heart Institute, 2088 Ogden Avenue, Aurora.
Falls in Parkinson’s disease and other movement disorders are a fairly common occurrence. This is mainly due to instability with the posture and impaired gait associated with these conditions. This program will provide an overview of falls in movement disorder diseases compared to the general population. Dr. Hall will discuss the evaluation of individuals who fall, their prognosis and any associated medical conditions. In addition, the current management of patients who fall will be explained.
If you or a family member is living with Parkinson’s disease or another movement disorder, attend this free program. Registration is required. For more information or to register, visit rushcopley.com or call 866-4COPLEY (1-866-426-7539).
