Patient & Caregiver Symposium

The Symposium for Dystonia & Parkinson's disease is a free event hosted by The Bachmann-Strauss Foundat to help patients and their caregivers gain a first-hand perspective on the realities of living with dystonia and Parkinson's disease as well as educating and empowering patients living with these two movement disorders. This symposium offered presentations from top neurologists, speaking about the latest research, treatments and new discoveries, a panel featuring patients who have dystonia and/or Parkinson’s disorders, and a variety of interactive classes with complimentary therapies.  Types of classes that have been offered at our past Symposiums include Yoga, Pilates, T’ai Chi Chih, Meditation, Massage Therapy, Alexander Technique, Nutrition, Music, Movement & Dance, and Emotional Coping Strategies.
