What is thCalifornia Parkinson's Disease Registry? 

California Health and Safety Code (HSC) 103870-103870.2 requires healthcare providers diagnosing or providing treatment to Parkinson's disease patients to report each case of Parkinson's disease to the California Department of Public Health beginning July 1, 2018.  The Richard Paul Hemann California Parkinson's Disease Registry (CPDR) is a statewide population-based registry that will be used to measure the incidence and prevalence of Parkinson's disease.  

Surprisingly, little is known about how Parkinson's disease is distributed among different population groups and whether the patterns of disease are changing over time.  California's large and diverse population makes it ideal for providing important information about this disease.   

What is the Parkinson's Disease Registry 

The California Parkinson's Disease Registry is hosting a free virtual conference on Saturday, September 26, 2020 from 10:00am - 12:00pm for the broader Parkinson's Disease Community. Registration is for attendance to the conference only. This is not to sign up for the registry.

What will I learn?

Additionally, this information could lead to increased funding for Parkinson's Disease Research.
