“Apathy is a symptom that challenges us the most,” says Veronica Bruno, MD, “It’s very important to learn how to live with [Parkinson’s disease].”
Feelings of apathy, anxiety and depression are some of the symptoms that can arise years after diagnosis with Parkinson’s disease (PD). Karen Jaffe, MD, member of The Michael J. Fox Foundation's Patient Council, leads a thoughtful discussion with experts on physical, social and emotional changes you may notice after living with PD for some time. In this audio from our Third Thursdays Webinar replay, hear panelists examine how engaging with the things you love, connecting with others, finding support and staying active and informed are some key ways to take charge of Parkinson’s disease.
Expert panelists include:
- Henry Hansmann, diagnosed with Parkinson’s in 2009, law professor at Yale University
- Veronica Bruno, MD, movement disorder specialist and clinical assistant professor of neurology at the University of Calgary in Alberta, Canada
- Vikram Khurana, MD, PhD, attending neurologist and chief of the Division of Movement Disorders at Brigham and Women's Hospital and Harvard Medical School in Boston, Massachusetts.
- Marc Jaffe, Karen’s husband; writer, author and Parkinson’s research advocate.
