This seminar is part of the 2019 Helping Children Heal Conference and Child Abuse Prevention Month.
The topic of this free in-person lecture is "Interventions for Movement Disorders - Update 2019," presented by featured speaker Ryder Gwinn, MD, a neurosurgeon with Swedish Neurosciences Institute.

Light refreshments will be served.
This is the first of what will be an annual lecture on Parkinson's disease and other neurological disorders made possible by a generous donation from the family of Herman S. Napier. Dr. Napier was a respected professor and retired U.S. Army lieutenant colonel who died from conditions associated with Parkinson's at age 96. Thanks to the Napier family, St. Luke's is pleased to provide this opportunity to learn about new advancements in the treatment and understanding of Parkinson's disease and other movement disorders.
