Breaking It Down event to discuss Parkinson’s research

Parkinson’s disease is diagnosed in tens of thousands of Americans each year. The cause is unknown, but many health care professionals across the country are finding new ways to help prevent and treat the disease.

The Gardner-McMaster Parkinson Center of The University of Toledo Medical Center presents Breaking It Down, an event discussing the advances in the treatment of Parkinson’s disease, at The Woodlands at Sunset House.

The free event is Sunday, June 22 at 3 p.m. Those wishing to attend may RSVP to 419.724.1225 extension 2309.

Dr. Lawrence Elmer, director of the Gardner-McMaster Parkinson Center, will review breakthroughs in the understanding of what causes Parkinson’s disease and the many options available to treat it.

Breaking It Down will also feature a smooth jazz performance by flutist Alexander Zonjic.

“I was fortunate enough to visit Sunset House with my friend Larry Burns of The University of Toledo. Once we saw the beautiful setting and how relaxing it is, we thought it would be a perfect location for a concert,” Zonjic said. “I believe there is a real therapeutic and healing effect to music. The jazz concert we will perform fits in perfectly with the atmosphere and mission of the event.”

The Gardner McMaster Parkinson Center is an inter-disciplinary organization dedicated to providing comprehensive, compassionate, and state of the art services to people with Parkinson’s disease and other movement disorders MD and their families.
