THANK YOU TO OUR 2016 PARKINSON'S DISEASE EDUCATION CONSORTIUM
Patient and caregiver education and engagement leads to better health outcomes for the individual and the collective, through specialist care, use of new treatments and participation in clinical research. In 2016 we launched our Parkinson's Disease Education Consortium with select industry partners to offer a robust set of educational assets including "Parkinson's 360" toolkit, Third Thursdays webinar and podcast series, "Ask the MD" video and blog series, Research Roundtable events, and MJFF website content. While the generous support of our consortium members makes our educational programs possible, their donations do not influence MJFF content, perspective or panelist selection.

THANK YOU TO ACORDA THERAPEUTICS
In 2016, MJFF and Acorda Therapeutics announced a collaboration to support research conducted by Connie Marras, MD, PhD, at the University of Toronto seeking to understand the impact of "off" episodes on people with Parkinson's disease and care partners. The study also will identify barriers and facilitators to communication about "off" periods between health care professionals, patients and caregivers.
