in Pacific Time (US and Canada)

Join us for a free webinar hosted by Stanford Medicine: Evaluating and Treating Urinary Problems in Parkinson’s, Multiple System Atrophy, and the Other Atypical Parkinsonism Disorders

Dr. Ekene Enemchukwu, a urologist at Stanford with extensive experience with PD, MSA, and similar disorders, will address these topics:

* Overview of urinary incontinence, retention, neurogenic bladder, nocturia, enlarged prostate
* What’s the relationship between urinary issues and constipation?
* How do urinary issues in MSA compare to those in PD?
* What treatments are available — conservative, medication, and surgical?

In this one-hour webinar, there will be time for audience questions on urinary issues in PD, MSA, and the other atypical parkinsonism disorders (progressive supranuclear palsy, corticobasal degeneration, and Lewy body dementia).

The webinar will be hosted by Candy Welch, whose late husband Bob had multiple system atrophy, confirmed through brain donation. She is a longtime member of Brain Support Network,
