MAHEC, in collaboration with the Parkinson's Foundation, is pleased to offer this interprofessional CE event. Getting adequate rest and sleep is an important component of overall health and quality of life. Parkinson's disease creates many challenges to getting a good night's sleep, both for the person with Parkinson's and their Care Partner. This program provides information on how Parkinson's disease affects sleep, and ways you can get a better night's sleep while living with PD.
