Too Busy Not To Post

I am quite busy and a bit overwhelmed with life but happy and enjoying immensley the writing up phase of my research. I am leading a Research Project funded by Fox Foundation, under the larger project Parkinson’s Disease in Latin America: Learning from Underrepresented Populations.

My part is a patient engagement into the needs of people with Parkinson’s in Latin America to understand the research priorities for research from their perspective. I don’t want to give it all away but I met 25 facinating people and now I am writing the results up.  Below is a paper from my teambwhich is a good starting point to understand the theme, if you like reading academic papers:

Burden of Parkinsonism and Parkinson’s Disease on Health Service  Use and Outcomes in Latin America

This article received a citation and very positive responce from the Parkinson’s Journal. Congrats to Dani Kim and the whole team.

And now – I better get back to writing up my research results but I value your thoughts and prayers over the next month so I can do this topic justice and help raise awareness of the needs of people with Parkinson’s in Latin America.

I’d like to meet the team at Michael J Fox Foundation and Michael too and explain to them the results.  My hope is that future research projects will help to make change in reality and improve care for people with Parkinson’s in Latin America. Thanks for your support and hopefully once the research is done I will be better a blogging too!

PS. Too busy not to blog is a title slightly stolen from a book some of you may have read back in the day. (If you don’t what I am talking about – Ask me and I can explain).
