Regina Gonzalez-Lama Participates in Parkinson’s Disease Training Program

November 22, 2016

Regina Gonzalez-Lama, R.N., B.S.N., M.S.N., and Lecturer at the College of Staten Island (CSI) participated in The Edmond J. Safra Visiting Nurse Faculty Program at the Parkinson’s Disease Foundation (PDF) at The Marlene and Paolo Fresco Institute for Parkinson’s and Movement Disorders at NYU Langone, one of eight training locations offered this year.. The 40-hour accredited “train the trainer” program is designed to improve nursing care in Parkinson’s disease by training nurse faculty leaders who, in turn, prepare their students to fight the disease on the front lines.

Gonzalez-Lama was joined by fellow faculty from undergraduate nursing programs across the United States who were immersed in academic instruction, hands-on experience with people with Parkinson’s, and mentorship from nurse specialists at nationally recognized movement disorder centers. By bringing this knowledge back to their students, she and her fellow scholars will help PDF to prepare the next generation of nurses to care for the growing population of people living with Parkinson’s disease.
