Readers Respond to Fall 2011 Newsletter

I wanted to express to you how much I enjoyed, "A Note to My Friends About Parkinson's."  Mr. Gall managed to describe a rather complex disease in simple terms in approximately twelve paragraphs!  He included facts, details, humor and a revealing "self portrait" of a man coping with a serious disease.  Very impressive!

Great story by Peter Gall in PDF News & Review ... uplifting ... can relate.

Mr. Elliott, your article entitled, "The Problem of Failed Trials: One Piece of the Solution," was brilliant!  I am totally in agreement with every point on which you elaborated.  I like what you said, "engaging people living with Parkinson’s in research decision-making is not just a warm and fuzzy idea; it is a vital means to improving the design, conduct and outcomes of clinical research down the road."  I have been saying this for years!  And I am honored to be a part of this group of "scientists."
