This month’s free webinar from The Michael J Fox Foundation will discuss urinary symptoms caused by Parkinson’s


As part of The Michael J Fox Foundation’s Third Thursdays webinar series the organisation will replay a popular episode focusing on urinary problems and Parkinson’s. This episode will broadcast on Thursday 16 August at 12:00 ET.

Those with Parkinson’s experience various urinary-related problems as the brain loses its control of the bladder – this can result in incontinence and a need to use the bathroom more frequently.

Broadcaster Dave Iverson hosts the hour-long webinar, which will advise on the treatments that are available. An expert panel will also answer questions and discuss ongoing research into the area.

You can register for this free online resource by clicking here up to 15 minutes before its start time. If you can’t make the broadcast, you can catch up from the recordings library here.
