Abstract : This conference grant supported the Parkinson's Action Network (PAN)'s 15thth Annual Research and Education Forum for Parkinson's patients, their families/caretakers and advocates held March 15 to 17, 2009 at the L'Enfant Plaza Hotel, Washington, DC. This forum brought together some of the foremost doctors and scientists working on Parkinson's research to share their work with patients and leaders in the Parkinson's community. PAN's Research and Education Forum serves as a premier educational program for Parkinson's physicians, patients, researchers as well as leaders in the Parkinson's community. The primary goal of the Forum is to bring together these various stakeholders so that they can share information and learn about the latest developments in Parkinson's research. Through plenary sessions, workshops and networking opportunities, participants will learn about the latest research and discuss creative ideas for new research endeavors. Fundamental to the success of the Forum is the premise that visiting scientists and researchers can learn from each other and from Parkinson's patients and caregivers.
