Almost one million Americans live with Parkinson’s disease, and another 60,000 cases will be diagnosed this year alone. But while there isn’t a cure yet, our understanding of disease and the discovery of certain symptom-mitigating treatments are helping the millions of people with Parkinson’s each day. On this episode, Baratunde discusses the disease with some of the most notable advocates for those with Parkinson’s, Laila Ali, who watched her father, Muhammad Ali, consciously choose to battle the disease in the public eye for over 30 years; American Ninja Warrior Jimmy Choi, who was diagnosed at the early age of 27; Debi Brooks of The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research, and National Institutes for Health neurogeneticist Dr. Andy Singleton, who explains the latest findings in the fight against Parkinson’s. Dr. Singleton’s appearance on the podcast does not constitute any endorsement of 23andMe or any other genetics testing company.
