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.
At the Partner Expo, people can learn more about treatment options and make connections with the Parkinson's community. The Expo includes information on resources for patients and care partners, such as exercise programs, support groups, care options, research opportunities and more.
