Teva Offers Free Easy-To-Read Pd Resource Guide In English And Spanish
Like you, Teva Neuroscience is committed to the support of, and providing resources for, the millions of people throughout this country who are affected by Parkinson’s – including patients, caregivers and loved ones.
As you may know, Teva offers a free PD resource guide called, “Moving Forward,” which is a practical guide to living with Parkinson’s.
As part of Teva’s ongoing commitment to providing resources for all, they have also developed a Spanish-language version of the valuable guide called, “Hacia Adelante.”
A study published in the American Journal of Epidemiology in 2003 revealed that the incidence for Parkinson’s disease (PD) was higher in both Hispanic men and women than all other groups studied. Yet there are several cultural and communication barriers that often make it difficult for Hispanics to receive proper care for their illnesses.
The English and Spanish versions of the easy-to-use guide provides information from diagnosis through disease progression, including information on managing PD, various treatment options, medical worksheet templates and resource links.
The free guide is available to anyone through their neurologist or by simply visiting www.parkinsonshealth.com and clicking on the “Take Control” section to view or download a copy.
