OSHU Balance and Gait Disorders Research : Metro Portland

March 4 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Donations Welcome
Person participating in an OHSU balance and gait research study

OHSU scientists have long been at the forefront of research into Parkinson’s disease. Over the years, they have played a role in every major development in Parkinson’s care. Learn what they have discovered and how it translates into helping people with Parkinson’s. For example – Our studies have shown that people with Parkinson’s disease need to pay more attention while walking than those without a neurological disease. Next time you are out for a walk, notice how you might slow down when you start talking to someone. The good news is, our research also shows that exercising while performing a secondary task (like talking out loud) can help improve performance over time.

Join us to hear leading investigators from OHSU speak about their findings and past participants speak about their experience working with the Balance Disorders Lab. It will also be a great opportunity to learn more about what research studies you may be eligible to participate in!
