Neurodegenerative Disease (e.g. MS, Parkinson's disease)
Promising interventions and emerging rehabilitation research opportunities for neurodegenerative disease and geriatric rehab will be discussed by senior researchers and representatives of various funding agencies. Early-career level scientists and clinical professionals will especially benefit from this symposium that will foster mentor-mentee interactions and opportunities. Representatives from funding agencies will begin with a panel discussion. This will be followed by small group discussions on more specific content areas (e.g. caregiver support, technology, health services outcomes), led by expert mentors.
