The Parkinson’s Action Network (PAN) is proud to welcome Francis Collins, M.D., Ph.D., Director of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), as the Keynote Speaker for the 16th Annual Research & Public Policy Forum.  Dr. Collins will speak to Forum participants both in Washington, DC and across the country via live Webcast on February 17, 2010.
