In this episode of The Michael J. Fox Foundation Parkinson's Podcast, we discuss the importance of voicing your Parkinson’s priorities on Capitol Hill and how that might look different during a pandemic. Stepping into his new role as host of the podcast, Foundation Patient Council member Larry Gifford leads a conversation with Ted Thompson, JD, Senior Vice President of Public Policy at MJFF, and Israel Robledo, MJFF Patient Council member and policy advocate, about:
Why what happens in Washington, D.C. matters to people with Parkinson’s
Why grassroots advocacy is important and how members of Congress need to hear from constituents
How you can get involved today to advocate for COVID-19 related telemedicine and mental health policy asks that could impact our community
