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 will not host any in-person Parkinson’s IQ + You events in 2021. We hope to schedule in-person events in 2022 when it is safe to do so. We will update the community on registration opportunities for future events and we thank you for your continued interest.
In the meantime, join one of our virtual events or webinars. And watch our events anytime on demand.
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 on the day of the event. 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.
