July 2021 Caregiver Webinars and other Virtual Events Stanford PD Community Blog

Every month, Stanford Parkinson’s Community Outreach produces a list of caregiving-related webinars and virtual events. Most of the webinars listed are for a general audience and are free.  

I’m amazed with the proliferation of Zoom meetings and webinars in the past year that there are surprisingly few caregiver-focused webinars offered in July – only six!  That said, two are stand out topics for me: 

  1. The Difficult Discharge, How to Navigate – sadly, there’s a small fee to attend ($15)
  2. Oral Health Techniques for Caregivers – I hope there is also some discussion of managing resistant behavior.

We encourage you to register for any of these events you are interested in.  That way, if you aren’t able to attend the live event, you will be alerted when the recording is available.

About the list below, unless indicated, all webinars and virtual events are:

  • Times listed as PT.  (We are based in California, after all.)
  • One-hour in duration.  (Commonly the speaker talks for 30-40 minutes and there’s a question-and-answer session for the remaining time.)
  • If there is no speaker indicated, the speaker is unknown at the time of this email.
  • For a general audience.
  • Not focused on a single medication.  (Those are excluded.)
  • Free.
  • Usually posted to the host website or YouTube channel in about a week.

Have a safe and enjoyable Independence Day!
