The Michael J. Fox Foundation's Podcast

Information on Coronavirus for the Parkinson's Community (Webinar)

Are people with Parkinson’s at higher risk of contracting coronavirus? What does social distancing mean for Parkinson’s care? In this month’s special webinar, Dr. David Aronoff, director of the division of infectious diseases at Vanderbilt University​; Dr. Katherine Leaver, assistant professor of neurology at Mount Sinai; Dr. Caroline Tanner, professor of neurology at University of California San Francisco; and Ted Thompson, senior vice president of public policy at The Michael J. Fox Foundation answer these questions and more.

We cover:

  • ways people with Parkinson’s may be impacted by coronavirus,
  • how to respond and adapt during this time such as asking about telemedicine and looking to your personal care team for guidance,
  • and how research may be affected and why online and phone research studies are increasingly important.
