Message from the Editors

TrophyFrom Hubert Fernandez, MD and Marcelo Merello, MD, PhD

Dear Members and Colleagues,

On behalf of the Society, we extend our deep appreciation to those of you who submitted educational video cases for the Society’s first Case of the Month Regional Section Competition. We received more than a dozen cases representing the three regions of MDS - Asian Oceanian, European and the Pan American region, including cases from India, Poland, Italy, Sweden, Ireland, Spain, Taiwan, and the US.

The Chairs of the Regional Sections will now review the cases and choose their favorites for final consideration by the Web Editorial Board who will vote for the case they feel best highlights a patient with an unusual or challenging movement disorder. The winner will be announced at the annual Congress in Dublin this June.

Thank you again to those of you who were willing to share your cases with the Society, and helping further advances in the field of Movement Disorders.

Coffee Break CME

Coffee Break CME is the Society's first online CME program specially designed for the busy clinician. For physicians who care for Parkinson’s disease (PD) and movement disorders patients, continuing education is critical to providing the best care possible. This program is designed to provide this information in a modular format where each module is focused on a single topic that can be completed in a short period of time and provide the clinician with updated information that is relevant to their practice. Both standard approaches and new advances will be highlighted. Go to Coffee Break CME. Video
