Age diagnosed: 8

Specialist interest: Awareness and media, co-creation and teamwork



I am getting more and more passionate by the day that PWP and their care partners receive the right information at the right time mindful to the fact that currently Parkinson’s is seen as a disease of aging with very little hope .

I want to change the conversation and increase the public’s health literacy by improving awareness that you can life a full life despite the diagnosis.

Matt has huge experience in living with Parkinson’s. To find out more, follow this link.

He spoke at CogX, a conference of Artificial Intelligence, and is also one of only seven people in Europe on the EyeForPharma Patient Conference Steering Committee who are currently working on the curation of a patient led part of the EyeForPharma Patient Summit Europe.

I have spoken at many events including Webit Festival Europe 2019 (pictured above), Wired Health 2017, FT European Digital Health Summit, The World Digital Health Congress, Medtronic in Morges, Switzerland, Founders Forum, Pharma On Boarding, The UK Neuro Science Association Winter Symposium.

I also spoke at The Giant Health Event and the 2nd Speech and Swallowing Congress too.

What is the one thing you want to change in the world?: “The public’s perception of PWP then ultimately find a cure!”
