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 Chicago event.
While we hate to disappoint our community, your health and comfort are our top priorities. Our team is working to reschedule this event for a date 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.
