  • Day 27 of #30DaysofPD: People With Parkinson’s Disease Are My Leitmotif

    Posted by Kevin Schaefer on April 28, 2022 at 12:45 pm

    This is Maria de los Angeles Bacigalupe’s story.

    Maria has been working with people in the Parkinson’s community for years as a medical researcher. She’s learned that every individual with PD is different and that their needs should be treated as such. She understands the power of community and empathy.

    Here’s an excerpt, “In all my years of study, I’ve learned that each PWP is as singular as any other human being. Academic books present Parkinson’s as a list of symptoms and signs, but PWP are much more than those descriptions. Every person is different.”

    Do you have any takeaways from Maria’s story?

    Parkinson’s News Today’s 30 Days of PD campaign will publish one story per day for Parkinson’s Disease Awareness Month in April. Follow us on Facebook and Instagram for more stories like this, using the hashtag #30DaysofPD, or read the full series.
