Education

Prepare with Knowledge

Parkinson’s disease is a chronic and progressive illness, requiring you to remain alert and vigilant as symptoms and care conditions evolve and change. Of course, it’s complicated. There is no single course of symptom progression. Families have different resources and coping skills. Response to therapies may vary from person to person and over time. The reassurance and information you most need when newly diagnosed may give way as new pressing situations present.

Throughout the year and across the region, PRO organizes opportunities for you to talk with and learn from talented professionals working to care for the needs of people with Parkinson’s. Whether a presentation about service dogs at a local support group, or lecture on clinical breakthroughs from a noted researcher, it is never too soon to start building your base of understanding and knowledge.

  • Live/In-person education programs.
  • On-line learning and webinars. See below to access recordings available for home viewing.
  • Annual conference for individuals with Parkinson's, family and allied health professionals.
  • Programs and workshops just for family caregivers.
  • Training and networking opportunities for professionals.

What They Say

"My wife's neurologist referred us to Parkinson's Resources of Oregon and shortly after we attended their annual conference. In that day, we learned more than we ever expected to, quickly understanding that we had a valuable navigational resource as we embarked on this journey. We immediately dove into all of PRO's offerings."

Gene G.

"Next to my medical specialist for Parkinson's disease, I count almost exclusively on PRO to educate me on up coming and most effective drugs, classes for physical exercises, and cognitive applications keeping the mind stimulated."

William S

"Before PRO, I simply didn't know where to go. The internet was scary, my neurologist wasn't going to see me again for 6 months. Finding PRO was like relief washed over me. I love the personal interaction and resources. They don't take the place of my doctor, but I couldn't imagine dealing with Parkinson's without them in my corner."
