Interested in Parkinson’s clinical trials, but not sure if they’re right for you? Get a behind-the-scenes look at the process by joining Inside Parkinson's Clinical Trials: What You Need to Know, next Wednesday, July 14 at 2 PM ET.
During this online seminar, you’ll hear from a real-life research partnership - Danna Jennings, M.D., of the Institute for Neurodegenerative Disorders in New Haven, CT, and Steve DeWitte, a study participant and graduate of PDF’s Clinical Research Learning Institute – about the questions you should ask before, during and after trial participation.
This online seminar is led by PDtrials, an initiative led by PDF and supported by other national Parkinson’s organizations.
Parkinson’s Quilt Project Deadline Extended!
The deadline for the Parkinson’s Quilt Project has been extended to Friday, July 23. If your quilt panel is received in time, it will be sewn together with 800 others to create the Parkinson’s Quilt.
The Quilt will be displayed for the first time at the World Parkinson Congress in Scotland in September to raise awareness of the impact of Parkinson’s and our continued urgency for a cure.
Please register online or contact PDF at firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible to ensure you meet this deadline.
