WELCOME!

Thank you to the hundreds of you who joined us for the 2020 Upper Midwest Parkison Congress. If you missed any of the session, or want to re-watch, recordings of Day 1 and Day 2 are available below and on YouTube by searching “APDA Parkinson Symposium.”

While we’re disappointed we couldn’t get to see you in person this year, we are thrilled about this opportunity to have come together virtually and to share these informative presentations with a larger audience. We hope you’ll share these videos with your colleagues and social networks, too.

How do I turn on/up the volume?
First, please make sure your computer’s audio is not on mute. Next, check to see if the video itself is unmuted – bring your cursor over to the video and on the bottom left corner there is a small speaker icon. If there is a slash through it, click it once to unmute the video. You can also turn the volume up on the video and on your computer. Headphones may also be helpful. 

Where can I watch this?
Right here! The page you’re on has the recordings of both day's broadcasts at the top of this page. You can also watch the session by searching for "APDA Symposium" on the YouTube app on any device, SmartTV, tablet, or mobile phone.

How do I ask a question?
The Live Q&As are over, however, please contact APDA with any questions you may have.

Is Captioning Available?
Captioned videos are available on the Upper Midwest Parkinson Congress playlist on APDA's YouTube Channel.

Was this Live? The presentations were pre-recorded to minimize technical issues, while the Speaker Q&A sections were broadcast Live immediately following each presentation with live questions from attendees.
