AN ESTIMATED 80,000 Australians are currently living with Parkinson's disease.

The average age of diagnosis is 65 years, but every day three Australians under 40 are diagnosed.  

While there is currently no cure, effective treatment and therapy options can help manage the symptoms.

The Queensland Brain Institute will bring world-leading experts in Parkinson's disease and other movement disorders (essential tremor, dystonia and Tourette syndrome) to Toowoomba to discuss therapy options.

At a free lunch event on Saturday, March 10, doctors and expert researchers will provide support and information for patients and carers.
