Parkinson Association of the Rockies



Global Community Conference on Parkinson's Disease
Beyond the Limits 
NEWSFLASH! Registration fee reduced!
The Parkinson Association is pleased to announce that we have received generous support for the Global Community Conference on Parkinson's Disease: Beyond the Limits (GCC), that enables us to dramatically lower the registration fee to $275 per conference participant.
Take advantage of this amazing conference that brings incredible individuals with Parkinson's expertise to our doorstep in Colorado. It is highly unlikely that we will ever be able to assemble such a talented group of national and international speakers on Parkinson's again.


Join us at the GCC to learn from some of the most highly respected people in the field of Parkinson's disease and movement disorders.  Don't miss this opportunity to learn from the masters:
