Coming soon to a city near you: Partners in Parkinson’s

partnersinPDThe Michael J. Fox Foundation (MJFF) is coming to a city near you to guide  you in assembling your best possible team of care providers, taking an active role in managing and improving your care, and help driving research targeting new treatments and a cure.

As one of the PiP Ambassadors, as well as a patient who has lived with Parkinson’s disease for 15 years, I invite you to join us for the kick-off event of Partners in Parkinson’s (PiP), on Sunday, May 18, from 8am-4pm at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in New York City. Next up on an 11-city tour across the United States is Cleveland on May 31. Admission is free, and includes breakfast and lunch. Registration is required. Click here to register now.

  • A full-day of educational seminars and panel discussions will provide new insights on a variety of topics including:
  • How to make the most of your relationship with your doctor, and what to expect from specialist care
  • Updates on research toward new treatments for Parkinson’s, and opportunities to participate in studies that need you
  • How Parkinson’s affects relationships with family, friends, spouse — and strategies for keeping these vital connections strong
  • How engaging in the Parkinson’s community can help others as well as yourself

Allow time to browse a full-day Resource Fair to learn more about the resources available in your local community, from movement disorder specialists and allied healthcare providers (such as physical, speech and occupational therapists) to political advocacy groups, support groups, clinical trials and more.

This educational initiative is co-sponsored by MJFF and Abbvie.
