Join Women’s Parkinson’s project for better treatment of women with Parkinson disease

In today’s post, I’d like to share with you a group that I find very interesting and unique, not only in terms of mission but also in terms of bold actions they undertake to enhance treatment of women with Parkinson disease in hospitals. Hence the name of the group ‘’ Women’s Parkinson’s Project’’.

Founded by 3 charismatic ladies, namely (pictures above from left to right), Kat Hill, Richelle Flanagan and Sree Sripathy, the group’s mission is to join voices together for better treatment and research for women with Parkinson’s disease. The questions they ask are very legitimate and have no answers so far. I’m quoting this paragraph from their website:

“There are more than 10 million people worldwide diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease. How many are women? What is the average age women are diagnosed? How do women react differently to medication than men? There are no clear answers. We need answers.”

I totally agree, we need answers!

Women’s Parkinson’s Project is based on 3 key pillars:

Advocacy icon

· Advocacy: Sharing stories is an instinctual part of what we do and how we connect. Sharing our stories means raising our voices.

Community icon

· Community: Building a network of women who understand one another and can support one another is vital.

Self-Care icon

· Self-care: Taking time for ourselves is the quickest way to maintaining a healthy life with Parkinson's.

I encourage you to have a look at their blog as well, as they have plenty of real women’s testimonials regarding everything related to Parkinson. One of my favorite posts is called THREE DAYS BEFORE DBS , by REBECCA MILLER (SEPTEMBER 22, 2021).
