John Goulet, PWR!Gym Member, participant in NeuroDerm ND612H long-term clinical trial

February 17, 2021
4:30 - 6:00PM

Dr. Becky Farley

Learn about the synergistic relationship between exercise and medication and how together they can help you achieve the best level of physical fitness, function, and quality of life that is possible. Find out how to recognize when you may need to start medications or talk to your doctor to optimize your current medications. Discover research on how new delivery systems (for old drugs) may allow you to continue to reap the benefits of exercise without so many side effects that create barriers to participation in exercise and life. Hear testimony from one of our PWR!Gym members who chose to participate in a clinical trial testing one of those promising new treatment options!

Gupta HV, Lyons KE, Pahwa R. Old Drugs, New Delivery Systems in Parkinson's Disease. Drugs Aging. 2019;36(9):807-821.
