It's always a tall order to plod through websites searching for needed info and direction, so to facilitate the journey I wanted to mention some well known PD organizations worth checking out and possibly reaching out to (there are many other sources): The Movement Disorder Society in Adelaide, Australia, Parkinson's Disease Foundation in NY, National Institute of Neurological Disorder and Stroke (NINDS) at NIH in Maryland, Parkinson's Disease Society in London, Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research in NY, The Cure Parkinson's Trust in London, WE MOVE in NY.
Also there are webcasts of scientific conferences held by organizations such as PDF, www.pdf.org,
which I think are accessible to everyone.
I believe next year the "2nd World Parkinson Congress" (www.worldpdcongress.org) will take place which is a forum for the presentation of important developments from all over the world about PD covering medical & scientific research, treatment options, quality of life issues, etc.
This sounds like it should be worth following up on for state-of-the-art information.
