Excitement! Suspense! Harrowing adventure!...That's what's in it for me. What's in it for you when I speak at the Hope Conference in Seattle?

The Hope Conference is an event for people with Parkinson's Disease, their families and care givers. Here is a summary from the American Parkison's Disease Association Seattle Chapter
