The Marlene and Paolo Fresco Institute for Parkinson’s and Movement Disorders at NYU Langone Health is currently engaging a number of Italian sites (hereinafter “the Poles”) that are currently involved in clinical care and research in the field of Parkinson’s and movement disorders. The Fresco Parkinson Institute will provide guidance and support to the selected sites to further care and research by implementing the guidelines issued by the National Parkinson Foundation, which will be fully involved in this process.
