Kidderminster Parkinson's support group holding information day
7:10am Tuesday 23rd October 2012 in News
THE Kidderminster support group of Parkinson’s UK is inviting people to join it for an information day to hear about the latest developments in research into the degenerative neurological condition.
The group, together with the Worcester and District branch, is hosting the event on Tuesday, November 13 at Wolverley Memorial Hall from 10.30am until 2pm.
Dr David Dexter, a scientific director at the Parkinson’s UK Brain Bank, will give an introduction about the work of the brain bank and explain how donating a brain can help with research into finding a cure for Parkinson’s.
The second speaker, Rosemary Fricker, of Keele University in Newcastle-under-Lyme, will talk about the progress of a current Parkinson’s research programme they are working on.
The event is aimed at people living with Parkinson's and their families and friends, who want to learn more about the condition and find out more about the latest research into Parkinson’s.
There will also be an opportunity to ask questions and find out about the help, support and services that are available locally, regionally and nationally to people with Parkinson’s.
Advanced booking is essential so everyone can be catered for during lunch. To book a free place call Robin and Lennette Hancox on 01562 851713 or email email@example.com.
The Kidderminster group meets at Wolverley Memorial Hall, Shatterford Lane, Wolverley, on the second Tuesday of the month at 10.30am.
