Podcast: What Comes Next? Living with Parkinson’s Years after Diagnosis
Wednesday, 4th August 2021

“If somebody told me that they could stop my Parkinson’s where it was, but not go back to normal, I would consider that a cure,” said Karen Jaffe, MD, Michael J. Fox Foundation Patient Council member, as she leads a discussion on our Third Thursday Webinar. In this audio from the webinar, hear expert panelists discuss changes you may notice after living with Parkinson’s for some time, the latest research to slow and stop disease, and opportunities to take action.

Panelists include:

  • Henry Hansmann, diagnosed with Parkinson’s in 2009, who shares how the disease has impacted his work life and what he has found helpful in managing everyday life with Parkinson’s.
  • Veronica Bruno, MD, who details what symptoms people may be experiencing years after diagnosis and strategies to help manage those symptoms.
  • Vikram Khurana, MD, PhD, who offers hope and optimism about the robust Parkinson’s pipeline and approaches to slow and stop disease, including stem cell therapies.
  • And Marc Jaffe, Karen’s husband and care partner, who explains the importance of maintaining social connections and finding ways to get involved in your loved one’s care.
