FEBRUARY 2011  Tpws-2-22-11welve people—our largest lunch ever—welcomed guest Dr. Melanie Brandabur. She brought the latest news of a study at The Parkinson’s Institute that links common pesticides to PD. She also shared news about the recent grant to the Parkinson’s Insitute for $1.3 million for gene repair research awarded by the Cal Institute for Regenerative Medicine. We had guests as far away as Monterey and Roseville who traveled just to meet us! In March of 2011, we discussed an upcoming webinar about improving our “on” time without dyskinesia. The webinar included physician expert, William Marks, MD, Associate Professor of Neurology, University of California, San Francisco. This was one of many informative webinars regularly offered by the  Parkinson’s Patients Support Groups, Inc. of Northern & Central California. http://www.ppsg.org
