The 2019 "Aspen Course" is a continuation of the highly successful program previously of Columbia University from 1991 until it came to MDS in 2016. The course is designed for general neurologists, neurology residents, Movement Disorder fellows, and other healthcare professionals who wish to enhance their knowledge of Movement Disorders.
This program will discuss the classification of these disorders, their differential diagnosis, and their treatment. The course curriculum also covers the phenomenology, pathophysiology, pathogenesis, epidemiology, genetics, and other aspects of the entire field of Movement Disorders. This material will be presented in sessions utilizing didactic lectures, clinical discussion, case presentation, video demonstrations and panel discussions.
Participants are encouraged to bring interesting cases from their own practice for presentation during the "Night Video Rounds" session.

Linking Pathogenesis with Disease Modification: Revision vs Reconstruction
Challenge: How can disease modification in Parkinson’s disease become a reality in the near future? If Parkinson’s disease is not a single, homogeneous disorder, can advances in biomarkers and disease modification be revised to concentrate on commonalities of pathogenic mechanisms in large populations OR do they need to be reconstructed for application to smaller subgroups of patients, distinguished by well-defined molecular characteristics?
Steering Committee: Anthony E. Lang, Alfonso Fasano, Francesca Morgante, Alberto J. Espay, Andres M. Lozano, Lorraine Kalia, & Antonio Strafella
