Parkinson’s care partners—spouses, partners, kids, friends, neighbors, etc.—are important members of any care team.

The Davis Phinney Foundation and Dr. Jori Fleisher are here to talk about all the research she is working on to address the needs of the Parkinson's care partner. Dr. Fleisher is a fellowship-trained, movement disorders neurologist and researcher at Rush Medical College with a special interest in understanding the needs of individuals and families who are living with advanced Parkinson’s and related disorders
