The purpose of the LPLS is to follow individuals with Parkinson's disease (PD) over multiple years; through their lifespan if they are willing and interested. Our study will explore the relationship between lifestyle and PD symptoms. By tracking lifestyle variables along with body composition, cardiovascular health, and physical function, we hope to assess the impact of lifestyle choices on the progression of PD.
We will be working with you every step of the way through this study and want you to know a little bit about us. Our team and about twenty student research assistants will also be helping you through your participation.
