Podcast: Calling All Care Partners: Managing Disease and Burnout in 2020 (Webinar)

Care partnerships can be different and evolve based on relationship, circumstances, symptoms and stage of disease.

In this audio from our Third Thursdays Webinar, Dave Iverson, contributing editor and emeritus Patient Council member at The Michael J. Fox Foundation (MJFF), speaks with panelists who offer different care partner perspectives.

Christie Brooks, diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease (PD) in 2013 and her husband, Prentis, both Team Fox members and Human Resources professionals, provide tips that have helped their relationship. Taryn Fixel, managing director of Liminal Ventures and MJFF Leadership Council member, shares her experience as a care partner for her father who has been living with Parkinson’s for more than 20 years, and Amy Chesire, LCSW-R, MSG, offers expert advice as a social worker in the field helping people and families navigate PD.
