Topic 35: parkinson's & publication links
This site contains education and research URL's bookmarked by a Parkinson's patient. Nothing you read in these pages should be considered an endorsement or medical advice.
When I was first diagnosed, I of course knew zip about Parkinson's and found only a few outdated references in my local library... Now there is a lot of information but for some inexplicable reason it seems buried and not readily accessible on the big Foundation's sometimes hard-to-navigate web sites... So this is my attempt to "organize" publications...
WPDA Publications - Here is the first listing of publications on Parkinson's Disease available from various, mostly WPDA members, associations. WPDA invites all PD Associations, worldwide - even non-members - to make their educational booklets available for inclusion in this list. (English,Chinese, French, German, Italian,Portugese, Spanish, and Swedish, so far... it's a good start!)
