Jamie E. Askari is a weekly columnist for Parkinson’s News Today. Jamie is also the managing director of Premier Health Advocates, LLC, a small medical advocacy organization in Cleveland, Ohio. Her husband Arman was diagnosed with Young Onset Parkinson’s disease in 2009, before his 40th birthday. Jamie and Arman have three grown children: Lexy, who is an attorney, Mandy, who is completing her MBA and dietetic internship; and Jake, who is an undergraduate student studying Finance and Accounting. She has named her column “The Bright Side” (actually, her husband named it!) because of their positive attitude regarding PD and everything in their life. Jamie is thrilled to share her story with Parkinson’s News Today!
