As part of Parkinson's Disease Summer School, we have arranged for each participant to have several lab tests done prior to the start of the school. These will provide our faculty-doctors the latest insights on your health and enable them to work with you to develop a strategy that is personalized to you.

All lab test kits and request forms will be sent to each registered participant in early July to provide sufficient time for the tests to be completed and sent to our faculty-doctors.
