Atypical Parkinsonisms


**Can't make this date? Register to receive a link to the recording.** Atypical Parkinsonisms present with some of the signs and symptoms of Parkinson's disease, but generally do not respond well to drug treatment with levodopa. About our speaker: Yvette Bordelon received her MD and PhD degrees from the University of Pennsylvania. Her thesis work was performed with Dr. Marie-Francoise Chesselet and focused on understanding the brain circuitry involved in movement and mood and thinking. She went on to residency training at Massachusetts General and Brigham and Women’s Hospitals and then did a Movement Disorders Fellowship at Columbia University. Dr. Bordelon specializes in atypical variants of Parkinson’s disease, and in 2024 joined the Movement Disorders Program in the Department of Neurology at Cedars Sinai. -- This event is part of PCLA's "Let's Talk Parkinson's" series of live online events.
