Many of the valuable resources available to help patients with Parkinson disease are only available in English. In a new book translated into over 20 languages Michael S. Okun, MD, the co-director of the University of Florida Center for Movement Disorders & Neurorestoration, aims to help patients live well with Parkinson disease. “Parkinson’s Treatment: 10 Secrets to a Happier Life” is available as an ebook for $3.99.

“Almost nothing is available to patients about basic lifestyle things in any language but English. Even in the most educated patients, who have access to everything, there are still lots of very simple things they aren’t doing. There are lots of things you can do to improve your quality of life.” – Michael Okun, MD

The new book discusses topics including medications, depression, hospitalization, exercise and more.
