The Puerto Rico Hispanic Outreach Initiative, led by the Miami Udall Center’s Dr. Jeffery Vance in partnership with Dr. Angel Viñuela Cabezas de Herrera, a movement disorder specialist based in Puerto Rico, will focus on the genomic characterization of Parkinson’s Disease risk within the Puerto Rican and Hispanic community.

Our Udall researchers will present at the First Pan American Parkinson’s Disease and Movement Disorders Congress held in Miami, Florida on February 24-26, 2017.
