Michael J. Fox Foundation Co-Founder and Executive Vice Chairman Debi Brooks has not only been instrumental in conceiving, structuring and fundraising for the Parkinsonís Progression Markers Initiative (PPMI); she also is participating in the study as a control.
This is the first time Debi has volunteered for clinical research, and she is blogging about what she learns along the way. In her latest video entry, she reflects on an inspirational PPMI event where she had the opportunity to speak with others who have volunteered to take part in the study. Debi was deeply moved by their stories of willingness.
