The Whatcom Family Y will be hosting a Michael J. Fox Foundation presentation on Thursday, August 15th at 10:30 am to be located on the 4th floor conference room.
The Michael J. Fox Foundation (MJFF) exists for one reason: to accelerate the next generation of Parkinson’s disease (PD) treatments. In practice, that means identifying and funding projects most vital to patients; spearheading solutions around seemingly intractable field-wide challenges; coordinating and streamlining the efforts of multiple, often disparate, teams; and doing whatever it takes to drive faster knowledge turns for the benefit of every life touched by PD.
In principle, it means leveraging our core values of urgency, optimism, efficiency, accountability and persistence in problem-solving to work on behalf of the 6 million people worldwide living with Parkinson’s.
Come hear how the foundation is working on Parkinson’s Disease.
