Beyond the Tremor: Motor and Non-Motor Symptoms of PD – Dr. Kanungo
Dr. Kanungo is a neurologist at the Fraser Health Movement Disorders Clinic, and a Clinical Assistant Professor in the Department of Medicine at the University of British Columbia. He actively participates in the training of medical students and residents, and maintains an interest in research aimed at improving the lives of people with movement disorders.
Dr. Kanungo’s presentation will discuss the non-motor symptoms of Parkinson’s disease, and how allied healthcare professionals, such as physiotherapists, occupational therapists, and speech-language pathologists, can help support people with Parkinson’s manage these symptoms. He will also discuss his research on the impacts of a multi-disciplinary approach to treating Parkinson’s.
