On Tuesday, March 7, The Morning Pointe Foundation will host its latest free Caregiver Café webinar, “Parkinson’s Disease: More than Motor Symptoms.”
The virtual event will feature guest speaker Mazhar Khowaja, MD, a board-certified psychiatrist. It will start at 6:30 p.m. Eastern Standard Time.
Khowaja has 25 years of experience working with people with Parkinson’s disease. He currently serves as the medical director for Deer Oaks, a private practice group.
The session will address the phenomenon of Parkinson’s psychosis (delusions and hallucinations), how common it is, how to recognize it, the brain chemistry behind it and how to treat it.
“Dr. Khowaja is a phenomenal speaker with a wealth of experience and information to share on a topic that affects so many seniors,” said Miranda Perez, Morning Pointe Foundation executive director. “I know the topic of Parkinson’s will be of interest to many families and caregivers.”
