Inbox for Parkinson's Disease

Excerpts from recent emails received at Parkinson's Focus Today:

From Peter F Thompson about the Parkinson's Disease Foundation Bal de Printemps 2009 at which they honored Dr Oliver Sacks and raised over $725,000. It was held at the Pierre Hotel in NYC:

"Thought some others with PD like me would enjoy this video shot for fun."

We've had the link in the right column for a couple of months but just in case you missed it: here is a link to the YouTube video of Peter blowing his harp. We loved it - Enjoy - Great for the soul - Bravo to Mr Thompson - fun to watch - let your body move and groove!

And from Melissa Berry at the Parkinsons's Disease Foundtion:
"Hi everyone,
I wanted to share some news, which is that PDF is now accepting applications for our Second Clinical Research Learning Institute. Last year, 25 people living with Parkinson’s partook in the training and have been very active this year in utilizing their new skills in communities all across the US (and Puerto Rico).

The full information is now available: Clinical Research Learning Institute (Thursday October 15 through Saturday October 17, 2009)

The Learning Institute is a three-day, all expenses paid training. The faculty includes players from all sides of clinical research – researchers, coordinators, representatives of industry and government.

There is a formal application process which is now open and will end on July 17. ... we’ll be letting the community know, in our eblasts and through a press release on the website. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact me or my colleague Nicole who is mentioned on the website...

In another email, PDF announced the new blog by their Executive Director. We're adding that blog link in our list of blog links in the right column, just scroll on down...

Note: we will never share an email of a personal or confidential nature. We only share those in which the sender has sent information intended to be conveyed to you.
