The videos of the four presentations given at the November 5, 2016 Regional Conference in Victoria are now online at the Parkinson Society BC website at the following location:
There are a lot of links from other conferences on this page so I’ve pulled out the relevant ones and put them below in presentation order with duration times and links that open in a new tab or window.
- Parkinson’s Overview [1h 3m 33s], Dr. Silke Cresswell
- Sleep and Parkinson’s [34m 31s], Dr. Jason Valerio
- Food for Thought: Diet & Nutrition in PD [49m 40s], Dr. Laurie Mischley, ND, PhD, MPH
- The Benefits of Mindful Living [30m 35s], Michelle Fraleigh, MBA, MA, CCC, RCC
They are worth listening to. One of my favourite quotes comes from Laurie Mischley’s talk:
We’re really good at hiding your symptoms while your disease progresses, but we are really bad at changing the rate of disease progression … we are celebrating the 200th year anniversary next year and we don’t have a single therapy other than exercise that has been shown to slow disease progression.
