April 11 is World Parkinson’s Day and North Shore Private Hospital held a fundraiser to support the Shake it Up Australia Foundation and the work they do for Parkinson’s research. Sydney DBS organised a cupcake stall to raise funds and were well supported from visiting patients, families and staff from NSPH. Clinical Nurse Educator Morena Hill and Nurse Unit Manager from the Neurosurgical Ward Karen Morrison manned the stall and provided helpful information on Parkinson’s disease for those who stopped by to donate.
