Free virtual symposium: Smell & Parkinson’s disease – October 30 at 2 p.m


In partnership with Parkinson Quebec, we would like to invite the community to join the Symposium on Smell and Parkinson’s Disease, which will be held online on Friday, October 30, from 2 to 3 p.m. This event is free and open to all!

Dr. Johannes Frasnelli, a researcher of the Université du Québec à Trois-Rivières (UQTR), is one of the few researchers in Canada who specializes in smell and Parkinson’s. His research could allow earlier detection of the disease and therefore, develop drugs that could act more quickly on the disease. Most people who live with Parkinson’s disease have problems with smell. According to him, not all smells are considered equal and only some are specific to Parkinson’s disease.
