Even though I live in California, I understand the difficulty getting to the meetings. I find that CurePSP does post youtube videos of the conferences that I have found helpful. I just re-watched one from last year. It covered PD, PSP, CBD and MSA. My husband entered Year 3 since diagnosis, so I am trying to get a grip on how he is doing vs where he was. I used this video to provide benchmarks. It also helps me prepare for visits to the neurologist and anticipate and prepare questions.

That is what I did when I watched this utube about PSP. I took 2-3 pages of notes to help keep up with where my husband is and to take to the neurologist.

Kryste, thank you for posting this. I wish we could go because it should be interesting. Will they be putting it on utube or live scanning it for those of us who cannot go?

kryste in reply to mthteach

I do not know but I will be sure to ask them to and let them know how important it is for all of us to be able to hear what they say so I will see what I can do or who I need to talk to.

Hugs kryste
