Welcome to Our Parkinson's Place


I copy news articles pertaining to research, news and information for Parkinson's disease, Dementia, the Brain, Depression and Parkinson's with Dystonia. I also post about Fundraising for Parkinson's disease and events. I try to be up-to-date as possible. I have Parkinson's
diseases as well and thought it would be nice to have a place where
updated news is in one place. That is why I began this blog.
I am not responsible for it's contents, I am just a copier of information searched on the computer. Please understand the copies are just that, copies and at times, I am unable to enlarge the wording or keep it uniformed as I wish. This is for you to read and to always keep an open mind.
Please discuss this with your doctor, should you have any questions, or concerns. Never do anything without talking to your doctor. I do not make any money from this website. I volunteer my time to help all of us to be informed. Please No advertisers, and No Information about Herbal treatments. This is a free site for all.
Thank you.

Bial launches video campaign for World Parkinson’s Day

April 10, 2017

Aims to challenge negative portrayals of people with the disease



Portugal-based pharma company Bial has launched a video campaign, ‘Me At My Best’, to raise awareness of Parkinson’s disease.
People who have been diagnosed with the progressive neurodegenerative illness were invited to appear on the video to help show others with the disease that it is possible to live a normal life.
By doing so the video also aims to “counter the negative portraits of people with Parkinson’s”, shows the volunteers performing daily tasks such as buttoning up shirts, putting on make up, and playing the guitar.
António Portela, CEO at Bial, said: “Hopefully, we can inspire and empower the millions of people living with Parkinson’s to never give up on their dignity.
“Bial’s aim is to help the lives of people with Parkinson’s even it it’s to help with one small thing at a time.”
The campaign will officially launch in April for World Parkinson’s Day on April 11
