Professor Simon Lewis presentation in February 2019

On  Friday 22nd February Professor Simon Lewis gave a presentation for PACT in Canberra. The presentation, titled How will we ever cure Parkinson’s?,  was followed by a Q and A session.  You will no doubt be aware that in addition to his research and clinical work Professor Lewis is a tireless educator and communicator on Parkinson’s. The information he provides on his website www.profsimonlewis.com is testament to that.  We appreciate his kind offer to volunteer his time to present to you in Canberra.
