Michael J Fox webinar

This month’s free webinar from the Michael J Fox Foundation will discuss how earlier Parkinson’s diagnoses could help test therapies to slow or even stop the disease progressing

This hour-long webinar is hosted by Hosted by Danna Jennings, MD, clinical research director, Institute for Neurodegenerative Disorders and Samantha Hutten, PhD, senior associate Director of Research Programs, Michael J Fox Foundation.
