    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Dr Stacy
    Is your research on Parkinson's limitied to movement or are involved with all research? The reason I ask is I would like to know what progress has been made in other areas of the disease, such as memory.

    Thanks

    Hi, worn1
    I have research interests mainly in PD, but work in applied research, developing new treatments in PD, dystonia, tremor and Huntington's disease.

    Dr Stacy do you think acupuncture along with a good exercise program could replace the medications?
