Officials will celebrate the grand opening of the University of Florida Center for Movement Disorders and Neurorestoration at 11 a.m. Monday, April 18, 2011.
The center will occupy the fourth floor of the UF Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine Institute at 3450 Hull Road, within easy reach of the UF Hilton Conference Center Hotel and the Butterfly Rainforest at the Florida Museum of Natural History.
The event will feature a welcome by Center Co-directors Michael S. Okun, and Kelly D. Foote, M.D., and remarks by Dean Michael Good, M.D., and Maggy Hurchalla, an advocate in the fight against Parkinson’s disease and sister to former U.S. Attorney General Janet Reno, who will be an honorary guest at the opening.
With faculty from more than 10 colleges throughout the UF campus, the Center will offer true patient-centered care combined with interdisciplinary research in one location. Faculty and staff are urged to attend. After the opening ceremony, tours will be offered from noon to 3 p.m.
We will begin seeing patients at the new center on April 19th, 2011.
