As you probably know by now, the World Parkinson Coalition’s big event, the 4th World Parkinson Congress, is coming to Portland, Oregon in September 2016. Starting today and the first Tuesday of each month until September 2016 you can enjoy Portland Countdown, a podcast dedicated to important Parkinson’s topics and timely information. Hosted by Dave Iverson and Jon Palfreman, in this premiere #WPCPodcast, they interview Dr. Andrew Lees and discuss some history of Parkinson’s disease.

I found the podcast to be informative and refreshing in that Dr. Lees described Parkinson’s from a perspective unlike most doctors that I have encountered. I hope you enjoy it!
