MJFF Third Thursday webinar YOPD

This month’s free webinar from the Michael J Fox Foundation will discuss the challenges and treatment of young-onset Parkinson’s disease

On Thursday 15 June at 12:00 EST the Michael J Fox Foundation will be broadcasting the latest episode in their Third Thursday webinar series.

In this hour-long seminar, broadcasting journalist Dave Iverson will be joined by a panel of patients and clinicians, to discuss the challenges and treatment options for people with young-onset Parkinson’s disease.

Young-onset Parkinson’s is rare and only affects around 5–10% of those living with the condition. Despite experiencing similar symptoms to older people, those under 50 often face unique challenges and can think about taking different approaches to treatment.

It’s free to join the live webinar, just register here up to 15 minutes before the start time of 12:00 EST on 15 June. Listeners can submit their own questions to the panel while the discussion is happening in real time. And if you can’t make it for the live broadcast, catch the recording in the library archive here or on YouTube.
