While many people think of Parkinson’s disease as primarily a movement disorder, characterized by a tremor, shaking, or stiffness. As many as 90% of persons with  Parkinson’s also live with behavioral symptoms, that can include: depression, anxiety, disrupted sleep, and apathy. Misunderstanding of these non-motor  problems, can leave persons with Parkinson’s and their loved ones confused and frustrated.  Dr. Joseph Friedman, a Neurologist, and leading expert on Parkinson’s will discuss some of these issues, provide guidance on ways to cope, and suggestions for communicating  with  your own physician. 

Dr. Friedman is the Director of the Movement Disorders Program at Butler Hospital and Professor and Chief of the Division of Movement Disorders/Department of Neurology at the Alpert Medical School of Brown University.
