The Lifestyle and Parkinson's Longitudinal Study
The purpose of the LPLS is to follow individuals with Parkinson's disease (PD) throughout the course of multiple years; through their lifespan if they are willing and interested. Our study aims to determine how lifestyle affects PD symptoms. By tracking lifestyle variables along with body composition, cardiovascular health, and physical function, we hope to assess the impact of lifestyle choices on the progression of Parkinson's disease.
BENEFITS: By doing so, we hope to:
Improve the lives of current and future Parkinsonians,
Provide education and research opportunities to young professionals (high school, undergraduate and graduate students),
Provide a comprehensive health report the annual status of the participants.
PARTICIPATION: Individuals who participate in the research will visit Concordia University Irvine's campus once per year for about 2.5 hours to participate in data collection.
We will be working with you every step of the way through this study and want you to know a little bit about us. Over twenty student research assistants will also be helping you through your participation.
