Parkinson’s IQ + You is a series of free in-person and virtual events from The Michael J. Fox Foundation designed to empower patients and care partners to manage the disease, learn about the latest research and connect with local resources. These events are fully accessible and are designed for people at every stage in their journey with Parkinson's. To ensure a spot, we encourage early registration.
Due to COVID-19, The Michael J. Fox Foundation has postponed all remaining in-person Parkinson’s IQ + You events in 2020. Averting large gatherings is not only our civic responsibility to help curtail the spread of the coronavirus, but is especially important given the potential increased risk to our audience given older age and health issues that can come with living with Parkinson’s. We are continuing to monitor the situation and will update the community on registration opportunities for future in-person events.
In the meantime, join one of our virtual events or webinars.
