Parkinson's look-alikes at first glance, many individuals with PSP, CBD, and MSA, often see multiple medical professionals before they receive an accurate medical diagnosis. Once diagnosed, they often sadly realize that their disease has a much more aggressive and less treatable course than PD. As patients, some impairment in speech and/or swallowing,is often an early symptom requiring referral to speech therapy. Individuals diagnosed with these rare neurodegenerative diseases are all struggling in their own way to cope with the daily effects of the disease on their body, family, and emotions. My Guest, Trish Caruana, MSW is Vice President of Programs and Education for Cure PSP, where she works to broaden and develop new avenues of support for those impacted by PSP/CBD and MSA. Cure PSP provides education and public awareness about the impact of these diseases on patients and their families. Public awareness, advocacy,and improving accurate diagnoses and treatment are Cure PSP's goals. Ms. Cauana has created innovative programming and widened the reach of education and support services for patients, care partners and healthcare professionals, and is currently working to establish new international collaborations and partner with related entities to establish a Global Database.
