Anxiety is a common symptom of Parkinson’s disease. The good news is there are strategies people with Parkinson’s can use to cope with its debilitating effects. Learn more about this under­-recognized symptom by joining a one-­hour online seminar led by the Parkinson’s Disease Foundation and Joseph H. Friedman, M.D., director, Movement Disorders Program at Butler Hospital and professor and chief, Division of Movement Disorders, at Warren Alpert Medical School, Brown University.

Participants in this web seminar will be able to:

  • Recognize the symptoms of anxiety in Parkinson’s disease;
  • Understand that anxiety in Parkinson’s is part of the disease and its pathology, and a            reaction to living with it;
  • List practical strategies for easing the effects of anxiety; and,
  • Review treatment options for anxiety in Parkinson’s disease, and discuss the lack of evidence­-based treatment recommendations.


Joseph H. Friedman, M.D., is director of the Movement Disorders Program of Butler Hospital and professor and chief of the Division of Movement Disorders in the Warren Alpert Medical School, at Brown University in Providence, RI.
