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.
