    Absolutely loved this. We are all individuals and “looks like” that’s just how “our” PD clients would best be served in the research world.

    Thank you so much.

    I was very interested in this talk. As I get to know more people with PD I see how different is each person’s experience. And it is not how many years have they been diagnosed which is the question we all ask. Just as important is who they are and what sort of life they have.

    We are all encouraged to help research. How do we know what to engage with? You said to ask “why me?” but how can we interpret the response? How to balance what would help me as much as it helps the PhD students? (I should add that by luck rather than judgment, I am on a research which is just right for me).

    I’m too impressed to have any question. I’m a Physiotherapist, working with PwPD, I know what you are talking about.

    Thank you dr Espray, your presentation makes me happy because it shows a new, a better perspective.
