Over 3000 people with Parkinson's disease completed Parkinson Alliance surveys in 2014. Learn about how these common motor and non-motor symptoms affect quality of life, and what you can do about it. If you are someone living with Parkinson's disease (PD), a spouse or other family member, or a health care professional, you will want to listen to November's podcast when I am joined by Carol Walton, CEO of the Parkinson Alliance, and neuropsychologist, Jeffrey Wertheimer, PhD, who will discuss findings of the top surveys from 2014. DBS4PD.org (www.dbs4PD.org) is a web based community founded by the President of the Parkinson Alliance, Margaret Tuchman, DBS-STN patient. DBS4PD.org is gaining a national reputation for its surveys which provide an opportunity for persons living with Parkinson's and their caregivers to share what matters most to them about a variety of important topics. The Parkinson Alliance surveys are a unique opportunity for you, someone living with Parkinson's to have a voice in what matters to you, and in turn, survey findings help to provide answers for members of the PD community.
