The Ventura Parkinson’s Support Group is delighted to be hosting Jocelyn Scherr, Associate Director, Advancement, of the Michael J. Fox Foundation For Parkinson’s Research on Wednesday, July 12, from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm.

Jocelyn will present an overview of the Michael J. Fox Foundation, an update on some promising Parkinson’s Disease Research in the pipeline, an update on the latest legislation passed that impacts the lives of people with Parkinson‘s Disease, priority areas for Parkinson’s policy work and information on how people can get involved through “Fox Trial Finder” and “Fox Insight”.

“The Michael J. Fox Foundation For Parkinson’s Research is dedicated to finding a cure for Parkinson’s disease through an aggressively funded research agenda and to ensuring the development of improved therapies for those living with Parkinson’s today. Since its launch in 2000, The Michael J. Fox Foundation has funded more than $700 million to speed a cure for Parkinson’s disease. When we find a cure for Parkinson’s – and we will – it won’t be because of any single person. It will be because of all of us, working together. We won’t stop until a cure is found. We’re on it.” (michaeljfox.org)
