Red Letter, Give a Dime
In this episode of When Life Gives You Parkinson’s, I am the host of a live event with four leading experts in the Parkinson’s world. Together they wrote a book called “Ending Parkinson’s Disease” and launched a red letter campaign to the White House. It’s been one year since the book was released and it has helped to inspired the movement PD Avengers, which I co-founded. What’s new in Parkinson’s? What have they learned? What’s standing in our way of success? Listen as Dr. Ray Dorsey, Dr. Bas Bloem, Dr. Michael Okun, and Dr. Todd Sherer sit down for one on one interviews with me and learn how, no matter where you are in the world, you can help make a difference.
