Jon Palfreman: Demystifying Parkinson’S Disease says
One million Americans suffer from Parkinson’s Disease–a progressive, mysterious, and debilitating disease. Peabody Award-winning journalist Jon Palfreman is one of them. His quest to “unlock the mysteries of Parkinson’s” began four years ago after receiving a positive diagnosis. Brain Storms documents his journey, the history of this still largely unknown affliction, and his thoughts on a possible cure. He’ll share stories from living with Parkinson’s and explain why it’s so important to talk about these experiences–mainly, it’s because, unlike those who suffer from other diseases, he still can. In his own words, “Parkinson’s patients like me take comfort from the idea that our insights can help unpack these diseases and assist in the scientific pursuit of better therapies and ultimate cures.”
