Study Description

University of Virginia Department of Neurology is currently looking for people with Parkinson’s Disease with sleep problems for a research study. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) is supporting the study.

The purpose of the research study is to learn if Light Therapy reduces sleep problems associated with Parkinson’s Disease and improves quality of life. As part of this study, we will use a number of assessments and questionnaires to determine if Light Therapy improves sleep problems in individuals with Parkinson’s Disease.

We are seeking participants who have been diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease and have sleep problems. Participants must also be at least 45 years of age. The trial is being conducted at 25 sites nationwide.
