More than 800 people attended the Neuro Challenge Foundation for Parkinson's annual symposium Saturday. With almost twice the attendance of last year, the foundation added an afternoon session to the day. Keynote speakers include the chief medical officer of Ascension Senior Living, Kevin O’Neil, and Joseph Friedman, the neurologist and chief of Butler Hospital's Parkinson's Movement Disorders Program in Rhode Island. O’Neil spoke about promising treatments for Parkinson’s and Friedman discussed behavioral aspects of the progressive, neurological disorder. Studies presented by speakers showed that exercise continues to be the most important non-medical activity that can reduce the symptoms of Parkinson’s.
