The goal of the Frederick C. Binter Center for Parkinson’s Disease & Movement Disorders is to plan and guide the development of clinical services, educational programs and clinical research opportunities pertaining to movement disorders. We strive to improve both the quality of existing services and expand/increase access to services throughout the region that may be required in the treatment of Parkinson’s disease and other related conditions.
Further, we are working to develop educational programs to serve patients, families and the medical community and also to facilitate evidence-based study of movement disorders.
We support community education about Parkinson’s disease (PD), a condition that affects people mostly over age 60. We arrange support groups, exercise classes, and other community outreach opportunities and strive to provide a wide range of services and resources to people living with PD (as well as younger populations living with conditions like Huntington’s disease, essential tremor, dystonia, etc.).
