PD Research: Sounds from Emory


The “PD Research: Sounds from Emory” project is designed to reach out to Georgia Parkinson’s patients and their caregivers to share relevant research findings from leading PD researchers at the Emory-Udall Parkinson's Disease Center. This project is the first of its kind to create a direct line of communication between Emory University researchers and the Parkinson’s Disease (PD) community.
