Parkinson's IQ + You

Parkinson’s IQ + You is a series of free 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.

    The Parkinson's IQ + You program features interactive sessions about living with Parkinson’s, making the most of doctor visits, building a comprehensive care team and learning about the latest research and the value of research participation. Sessions are led by a mix of people with Parkinson's, care partners, movement disorder specialists, researchers and allied health professionals. Registration and a welcome breakfast begin at 8 a.m. The program is from 9 a.m. until 2:45 p.m., and includes multiple breaks, lunch and light refreshments throughout the day.

Upcoming Events

A note on the evolving coronavirus situation: As you know, The Michael J. Fox Foundation has been monitoring the evolving situation surrounding coronavirus COVID-19. While the risk of exposure/infection likely remains low for the general public, we have made the decision to err on the side of caution and postpone the Parkinson's IQ + You events in South Florida, Chicago and the Bay Area.

While we hate to disappoint our community, your health and comfort are our top priorities. Our team is working to reschedule these events for dates to be determined later this year or early in 2021; please look out for future communications as we know more.
We apologize for any inconvenience. If you have questions, please contact us at (800) 708-7644.

Consider joining one of our webinars as we work on rescheduling these events.
