PEP Meetings

Parkinson Education Programs (PEP) are education events hosted throughout the year by the APDA – Greater St. Louis Chapter. We invite renowned speakers to address topics that are important to the Parkinson’s community. Admission is free. Links to archived PEP talks are available below. You can also contact our office here to request a DVD of an archived PEP talk.

Upcoming PEP Events

August 26, 2018Should Ms. Daisy Be Driving? and How To Talk About The Hard Stuff With Your Family Member

register for the August 26 PEP

Driving is often central to a person’s independence and sense of control, and giving it up can be an incredibly challenging decision.  The APDA cannot determine whether it is still safe for you or a family member to drive, but we can provide resources for driving evaluations and for transportation should driving no longer be an option. The August 26 PEP Meeting will feature Dr. David Carr, MD, speaking on Should Ms. Daisy Be Driving? and Sylvia Nissenboim, LCSW, speaking on How to Talk About the Hard Stuff with Your Family Member.

November 2018– Topic TBD
