PDF Research Advocates' Support Group Receives Research Funding
- Dec 30 2013
A project headed by Dr. Christopher and Sandra Herron has been approved for a “Pipeline to Proposal” funding award by the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI). The project is one of 30 proposals approved for seed funds intended to build communities interested in advancing patient- and stakeholder-driven health research.
The Cheyenne Parkinson's Disease (PD) Support Group’s project will focus on developing partnerships and building a community interested in promoting research on the underserved Parkinson's population in a large state, with comparatively few medical resources.
Parkinson’s disease is the second most common neurodegenerative disease after Alzheimer’s, affecting about one million people in the United States and expected to increase substantially as the population ages.
