In this month’s free webinar from The Michael J Fox Foundation, experts discuss how people with Parkinson’s and their doctors can work together to manage the condition


The latest episode of The Michael J Fox Foundation’s Third Thursdays webinar series, titled ‘Better Conversations and Care: How Patients and Doctors Can Work Together’, will be aired on Thursday 21 March 2019 12:00 ET.

In this free, hour-long webinar, broadcast journalist Dave Iverson will be joined by a panel of experts – made up of Parkinson’s physicians and people with the condition – to discuss how patients and doctors can work together to improve their relationships.

For those with Parkinson’s, building a strong partnership with their doctor is an important part of treating the condition. Knowing how to talk openly and honestly with medical professionals about everything, from diagnosis and symptoms to potential new treatments, will ultimately improve the experience of the person living with the condition.

Listeners can sign up for the free webinar 15 minutes before it goes live here, and are invited to submit their questions for panellists. If you can’t make the broadcast, recordings of all previous shows can be found in the archive.
