7-13 April – Parkinson’s Disease Awareness Week

The week beginning 7 April was Parkinson’s Disease (PD) Awareness Week, which saw our PD Research team (Charing cross & Hammersmith staff) working with Parkinson’s UK volunteers to promote awareness by setting up and manning stalls at Charing Cross.┬áThis included a lot of information about PD research from The Michael J. Fox Foundation,whose clinical trial studies we are running at Charing Cross. Michael J. Fox was diagnosed with PD when he was in his 30’s, and, via his foundation, is now funding a global study of which we, at Imperial college London, are one of the sites.

As well as research we have been actively working with volunteers to promote PD awareness to the general public, carers and health professionals.
