We believe now is the right time to increase the voice and profile of people with Parkinson’s and as our Director of External Affairs and Communications you and your team will be key in making this happen. We want to increase our influence to ensure better quality of care and support for everybody affected by Parkinson’s and to harness the passion and commitment of our community to make this happen.
