Shelf Talk | Medical Lectures + medical info: at your public library!
Shelf Talk is written entirely by Seattle Public Library staff.
The 5th Medical Lecture Series started last October and still has two more to go. Plan to attend to learn more about medical research for two medical conditions of great interest to many. On Wednesday, March 2 from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m., Dr. Hojoong (Mike) Kim will talk about new treatments in the pipeline for Parkinson’s patients. If you have Parkinson’s disease or are caring for someone who does, there are new treatments on the horizon that may provide real hope. Dr. Kim will discuss new studies and treatments that involve pharmaceutics, gene therapy and stem cell transplantation.
Dr. Christopher K.

It’s a long-term, chronic condition that affects children and adults.

Dr. Varley will define the disorder and share his ideas on managing symptoms and redirecting energy toward constructive and educational paths.
