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. This event is free. Links to archived PEP talks are available below.


This Parkinson Education Program would not be possible without the support of our generous sponsors.
