I was fortunate enough to be selected to attend the 2009 Clinical Research Learning Institute (CRLI) sponsored by the Parkinson’s Disease Foundation (PDF). It was a phenomenal experience! Everything about it -- from the speakers to the materials to the PDF staff to the accommodations to the fellow participants -- was first class!
PDF is now accepting applications for the 2010 Clinical Research Learning Institute (CRLI), to be held October 21 through October 23, 2010. This year’s Learning Institute will be held in Florham Park, New Jersey and is free of charge, with PDF assuming the costs for participant travel and accommodations.
As a CRLI graduate, I’d like to encourage you to inform others who have an interest in Parkinson’s Disease clinical research about this worthwhile opportunity.
Dear Friend of PDF,
You can contribute to the development of new treatments and a cure for Parkinson’s.
