Some comments on the lecture
What an inspirational talk… thank you so much for helping organise that.
I attended Tuesday’s lecture by Professor Roger Barker at the Royal College of Physicians and would like to thank everyone at Edinburgh Parkinson’s for organising it and bringing such an eminent, inspirational speaker to the city. His presentation was fascinating and highly informative and was much appreciated by all who attended.
Thank you for an excellent session tonight
Well done organising such an interesting and well-run event, thank you all very much indeed.
