Our next meeting


May 9, 2024

Meeting:Thursday, May 9, 2024 -  7:00 - 8:30 p.m.

PRESENTER: Drug Rep for Duopa

TOPIC: Duopa is a prescription drug that treats Parkinson's disease (PD) by delivering carbidopa and levodopa directly into the small intestine through a surgically implanted tube. This gel is intended to improve absorption and reduce "off" times, which are changes in movement abilities as the levodopa dose wanes. Duopa bypasses the stomach, which can empty slowly and irregularly in Parkinson's, leading to poor absorption and unpredictable relief with drugs taken by mouth. 

WHERE:  Glen Eddy senior residence,

1 Glen Eddy Drive, Niskayuna NY 12309


Use main entrance. Park in upper lot along the stone  wall. Meeting room is on second floor. Elevator and stairs are off the  lobby to the left.
