In this episode of The Michael J. Fox Foundation Podcast, we discuss the importance of voicing your Parkinson’s priorities on Capitol Hill and how that might look different during a pandemic. Stepping into his new role as host of the podcast, Foundation Patient Council member Larry Gifford leads a conversation with Ted Thompson, JD, Senior Vice President of Public Policy at MJFF, and Israel Robledo, MJFF Patient Council member and policy advocate, about:
- Why what happens in Washington, D.C. matters to people with Parkinson’s
- Why grassroots advocacy is important and how members of Congress need to hear from constituents
- How you can get involved today to advocate for COVID-19 related telemedicine and mental health policy asks that could impact our community
