It affects people with underlying neurologic conditions, such as multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, or even Alzheimer’s disease. The program will discuss how to recognize the symptoms of PBA, and it will encourage patients to see if they could be suffering from this condition and talk to their physicians about ways to manage it.
