Mariella GrazianoThe Health Professionals (Non-Physician) Special Interest Group is proud of their achievements in 2013 and are preparing for future challenges and opportunities.

In particular we are looking forward to the 19th International Congress of Parkinson’s Disease and Movement Disorders, which will take place in San Diego, CA, USA, June 14-18, 2015.

Check back soon for more details about special sessons for health professionals!

There are now more than 200 health professionals who are members of MDS! To learn more about our group, visit the HP SIG webpage which offers several videos of past lectures that took place at Congress, as well as a message from the Chair.  On this page there is an announcement section which allows an opportunity to share links to courses, events and conferences with the international community. Finally, a new book review section was launched in October 2013 with plans for more reviews. Read the first book review: “Rehabilitation in Movement Disorders.”

Also new in 2014 is a redesigned MDS website which includes this Health Professionals webpage. We are certainly pleased with this initiative, which will open up more channels of communication in the international stage. We invite your suggestions for content and look forward to hearing from you.
