My Father, My Brother & Me: Life with Parkinson’s Disease
- Thursday, June 28
- 12:00 noon
- ACB 240
In 2004, journalist Dave Iverson received the same news that had been delivered to his father and older brother years earlier: He had Parkinson’s disease, a degenerative neurological disorder that affects about one million Americans. Iverson sets off on a personal journey to explore the scientific, ethical, and political debate that surrounds Parkinson’s, a disease at the center of the ongoing controversy over embryonic stem cell research. Iverson talks to scientists on the cutting edge of new cures and therapies for Parkinson's as well as a number of other major neurological conditions. And he has intimate conversations with fellow Parkinson’s sufferers like actor Michael J. Fox and writer Michael Kinsley.
Attendees are welcome to bring their own lunch. Free snacks will be provided!
