This month’s free webinar from the Michael J Fox Foundation looks at the role of patients in helping find a cure for Parkinson’s


The latest instalment of The Michael J Fox Foundation Third Thursdays webinar series is entitled ‘How Patients Can Partner to Speed Cures’ and will broadcast on Thursday 19 April at 12:00 EST.

In the hour-long webinar – hosted by broadcaster and person with Parkinson’s Dave Iverson – experts will discuss how people with Parkinson’s and their loved ones can participate in studies which could speed up treatment breakthroughs.

The Michael J Fox Foundation believes that no amount of money replaces research volunteers in speeding up a cure for Parkinson’s. Learn more about the different ways in which people can participate in research.

You can register for this free online resource by clicking here up to 15 minutes before its start time. If you can’t make the broadcast, you can catch up from the recordings library here.
