Michael J. Fox Shares His 20-Year Journey with Parkinson’s and Vision for What Comes next in Parkinson’s Research

On the eve of twenty years since he publicly disclosed he has Parkinson’s disease (PD), Michael J. Fox sat down with television journalist and Foundation friend Jane Pauley for a special “CBS Sunday Morning” interview. Michael shared his early vision for the Foundation — to unite patients and researchers in a true partnership to accelerate research progress — and how the patient voice is critical in this next chapter of Parkinson’s research.

Jane and Michael were also joined by eight other people with Parkinson’s — each with their own version of the disease — to illustrate the variability of PD and the promise of the Foundation’s new online clinical research study, Fox Insight, to empower patients and the science community to work together.
