Danna Jennings, MD, is director of clinical research at the Institute for Neurodegenerative Disorders in New Haven, Connecticut and an investigator in the Parkinsonís Progression Markers Initiative (PPMI). This weekend sheís also a guest on the Dr. Steve Show, a syndicated television talk show focused on health and wellness.
We snapped a photo when Danna was in the studio with host Steve Salvatore, MD, on February 18 to tape this weekendís segment on what smell loss has to do with Parkinsonís disease (PD). PPMI is recruiting individuals with smell loss as itís an early sign of PD risk; the study is looking for biomarkers of Parkinsonís that would help diagnose patients, track disease progression and test new treatments.
If youíre over age 60 and do NOT have Parkinsonís, take the smell survey to see if youíre eligible to participate in PPMI.
Check to see if the Dr. Steve Show plays in your area and, if so, at what time. Or visit the blog next week to watch the clip of Dannaís appearance.
