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. This is a free site for all.
Thank you.

WATCH NOW: Michael J. Fox and MJFF CEO Share the Parkinson's Experience and Promise for a Cure

May 1, 2017


With another high-octane Parkinson's Awareness Month behind us, The Michael J. Fox Foundation is powering forward with a reinvigorated commitment to accelerating the cure for Parkinson's disease (PD). We hope you feel the same!

A few weeks ago, our Foundation had the opportunity to address the research team at Verily (formerly known as Google Life Sciences) in Silicon Valley. Michael offered his open and wise perspective on life with PD, while our CEO, Todd Sherer, PhD, provided updates from the front lines of research -- including the work already under way at our Foundation to leverage emerging technology for the benefit of everyone with Parkinson's.

Watch this entire special event, courtesy of Talks at Google. Then, forward it to your networks and encourage them to learn more about Parkinson's disease.
