Parkinson and PSP Research Updates: Major Biomechanics Meeting Held at UF

Chris Hass, Ph.D. and Mark Tillman, PhD., from the College of Heath and Human Performance at UF, are playing host to the American Society of Biomechanics annual meeting this week on the UF campus.  The meeting will be held at the UF Hilton across the street from the Center for Movement Disorders and Neurorestoration.  The UF team will be presenting important work to the national community on Parkinson’s disease, PSP, movement disorders, gait, and falling.

The meeting will also bring awareness to PSP (progressive supra nuclear palsy) through a program in the center run by Dr. Hass and McFarland, and through the generous support of the Allen family.  All attendees will carry bags with a PSP awareness message!
