I am now entering my 43rd year with Parkinson’s and 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.
“It only takes one drop of ink to change the colour of the water…be that drop of ink!”
I have spoken at many events over the last 12 months including 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 will be speaking 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!”
