About 400 people came to Parkway Place in Maumee today for an update on the latest research of ways to treat those diagnosed with Parkinson Disease.

Highlights of the 17th annual Parkinson's Disease Symposium themed "Today's Research, Tomorrow's Hope," featured  a 60-minute keynote presentation by Dr. Brian Fiske, vice president of research programs for The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research.

Topics covered by Dr. Friske included developments in Parkinson treatment research, new treatments, and new clinical research studies available.

“The treatment of Parkinson’s disease is quite individualized, so it is extremely important for patients to keep up-to-date with the latest research and treatment options to meet our goal of making this disease as insignificant as possible in their lives,” said Dr. Lawrence Elmer, professor of neurology and director of the Gardner-McMaster Parkinson Center at The University of Toledo, in a prepared statement.
