What to Watch This Election Season: A Roll Call of Parkinson’s Policy Priorities

October 15, 2020

Going into this election season, we’ll review programs that serve our Parkinson’s policy priorities of furthering funding for research, supporting therapy development and approvals, and safeguarding and expanding access to care.

Our contributing editor Dave Iverson will lead a conversation with NPR Senior Editor Ron Elving, MJFF Policy SVP Ted Thompson, and Dr. Allison Willis of the University of Pennsylvania to discuss the government’s role in these programs and how you, as an American taxpayer and voter, can advocate for Parkinson’s-supportive policies.

Read more about our public policy priorities.
