The Parkinson’s Support Group of the Philippines Lay Forum

Parkinson’s disease is one of the most complicated and also one of the least understood disease in the Philippines, if not the whole world.

In a continuing effort to provide understanding and support for people who suffer the disease, the Parkinson’s Support Group of the Philippines (PSGP) held a lay forum last May 9, from 1pm–4pm, at the Cathedral Heights Building Complex, South Tower of St. Luke’s Medical Center.

The forum was sponsored by Darvys Pharma and was open to the public with free admission. Cardiologist Dr. Roberto Raymundo of the Philippine Heart Center presided over the forum, with discussions on how Parkinson’s disease affects the heart, blood pressure, and blood vessels. He also talked about ubiquinone, a powerful antioxidant, and its benefits in patients with Parkinson’s disease and cardiac disorders, as well as fostering general health, wellness, and youth.

Interest parties may contact the PSGP at 631-1531 or the Movement Disorders Center of St. Luke’s at 727-5552.
