Power Over Parkinson’s meets monthly to empower, socialize, and learn. This month, we are looking forward to learning from our guest speaker, Chris Sheridan, BSN, RN. He is a Duopa RN Specialist with AbbVie, the makers of Duopa. He will be sharing his presentation entitled “Patient Partner Program: Getting to Know Duopa” with the group. The presentation will include an educational introduction of Duopa: 1) what is Duopa; 2) how Duopa is used; 3) important safety information; 4) what a “day in the life” might look like for a person using Duopa; and 5) introduction of a patient partner, who is a person with Parkinson’s disease who is on Duopa therapy.
