Michael J. Fox was featured as Diane Sawyer’s Person of the Week on “World News” last Friday Night. Diane praised Michael for the continuous efforts and he and The Michael J. Fox Foundation are making in Parkinson’s disease research and specially mentions the launch of Fox Trial Finder, the latest tool to engage the community and increase clinical trial recruitment and participation, as an example of this effort. Since the airing of this broadcast, we’ve received more than 1,000 new registrants on Fox Trial Finder—our largest number of registrants over a weekend, to date!
Thank you for tuning in and for signing up for Fox Trial Finder. The larger the list of participant volunteers, the more clinical trials that can be matched to interested and willing volunteers, which means more trials can fulfill enrollment and trial completion, bringing more treatments and drugs to the clinic and ultimately, the patient. Together, we are making strides toward finding the cure for PD.
