Battling Parkinson's: The Seminar is a public symposium targeted at the general public to experience as well as understand the difficulties faced by Parkinson’s patients through lectures, Parkinson’s simulators and our documentary. Battling Parkinson's: The Seminar aims to bring together the general public, Youth Corps members as well as caregivers to create public awareness and acceptance of Parkinson.
The event also encourages PwP to be active and positive, as exercises have been proven to be effective in helping them cope with their condition. The Parkinson’s Simulator which is a collaboration between Project Novo and the National Neuroscience Institute will provide a medium for experiential learning for guests to learn about the daily struggles faced by Parkinson’s patients. The documentary which is meant to have a two-fold function of increasing the confidence of the people with Parkinson as well as increasing acceptance and empathy for people with Parkinson among the general public.
This symposium is conducted to enable the public to know what exactly is Parkinson’s and its symptoms, while being able to experience how is it like living with Parkinson’s through the Parkinson simulator, helping us increase awareness of what Parkinson is.
