Parkinson’s Awareness Month — with Dr. Maria De Leon

Your grandmother had Parkinson’s. Could you tell us about your experience of being a caregiver?

Did you feel the need for some kind of tool or technology in your time as a caregiver?

How did your experience as a caretaker help you become a better doctor?

Do you have any suggestions for caretakers?

Do you think being in a community, having a friend circle helps?

Moving on to your work as an advocate. You have advocated for women’s rights, better representation in research. Could you tell us more about your advocacy efforts?

Could you tell us more about your research interests in Parkinson’s?

One of your goals in Parkinson’s research is to detect and prevent dementia. Could you tell us more about that?

Could you tell us more about your own diagnosis with Young Onset Parkinson’s Disease?

What symptoms do you face currently?
