Parkinson's IQ + You

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.

Parkinson's IQ + You Virtual

In 2020, Parkinson’s IQ + You has gone virtual. This online series is designed to help you and your loved ones navigate life with Parkinson’s. During each virtual event, you’ll hear from a varied panel of experts, gain access to timely resources and be able to ask questions.

The first event, The Doctor Will See You Now…Virtually,
explains telemedicine and offers tips on how you can make the most of a virtual visit with a doctor.

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.
