Mr. Fox Goes to Washington

Congratulations go to Joan Samuelson and her staff at the Parkinson's Action Network for their successful squiring of Michael J. Fox around Washington in his first major public appearance on behalf of Parkinson's disease research.

The high point was an appearance before the Labor/HHS subcommittee of the Senate Appropriations Committee. To obtain a copy of the testimony of Mr. Fox, Ms. Samuelson, Dr. J. William Langston (The Parkinson's Institute), Jim Cordy (Parkinson's Alliance) and Dr. Gerald Fischbach (Director of the National Institute for Neurological Diseases and Stroke, the federal government's main source of funding for Parkinson's disease research) contact PAN at www.parkinsonsaction.org.
