Whether you have Parkinson’s disease or have a family member who does, you may have thought about genetic testing. Understandably, many people wonder “if my parent/sibling has PD, will I get it also?” and “Am I genetically predisposed to get PD?” But what exactly is genetic testing and what can (or can’t) it tell you? Join us as we talk with Dr. Roy Alcalay, a movement disorders specialist and expert in PD genetics, who will help answer a myriad of questions about this complex topic, including: 

• Who should get genetic testing?

• Is all genetic testing the same? If not, what type should I get?

• How do I get genetic testing?

• Does insurance pay for genetic testing?

• What will I do with the results of genetic testing?

• And more! 

Dr. Alcalay will answer your questions LIVE, so be sure to register today and get those questions ready!
