Neurologist Dr Paul Silberstein joined colleagues and peers on 13 September at the Kolling Institute of Medical Research on the Royal North Shore Hospital campus for a Parkinson’s Disease information morning. The session was attended by allied health professionals, GPs and nurses from around Sydney who were interested in being updated on Parkinson’s Disease.
Dr Silberstein discussed the future of stem cell therapy and device assisted therapies such as deep brain stimulation. Parkinson’s Disease nurse, Susan Williams from Royal North Shore Hospital, gave a Parkinson’s Disease overview and Prof Carolyn Sue, Director of Neurogenetics at the Kolling Institute, updated the audience on the latest PD research out of the institute.
