Part of the PSG’s mission is to support clinical research for Parkinson’s disease, which would not be possible without the support of the clinical research coordinators at our sites. The mentorship, support, education, and training of coordinators is something that the PSG is incredibly passionate about. For the second year in a row, the PSG will be hosting our Coordinator Workshop at our annual conference in Austin, TX. The workshop will take place on Thursday, November 30th from 12pm – 5pm. The goal of the workshop is to educate and train on the most current developments in the field, to network amongst piers, and to further commit to a career in PD research.
As part of the PSG’s mission, we strive to engage with and educate early-stage clinicians that are interested in a career in Parkinson’s research. This grant seeks to fund travel to support exploration of this through attendance at our annual conference and through training at our Junior Investigator Workshop. The PSG supports diversity and inclusion, and we hope that this grant will also help those that otherwise might not be able to attend.
