Parkinson’s Foundation Learning Institute in Collaboration with Emory University DREAMS Program

Parkinson’s Foundation and Emory University's DREAMS: Developing Research Education and Advocacy for Multicultural Seniors are collaborating on the 2018 Learning Institute. 

Parkinson's Foundation and Emory University recognize that diverse perspectives are critical to improving research. Since 2008, Parkinson’s Foundation has trained over 280 volunteer Research Advocates who form the cornerstone of the Parkinson’s Advocates in Research (PAIR) program. Parkinson’s Foundation Research Advocates speed research by prioritizing research, improving studies and influencing stakeholders. Originally supported by a Patient Centered Outcomes Research Institute grant, Emory University’s DREAMS program has prepared 24 diverse seniors to influence, participate, and collaborate in all phases of the research process. By bringing these programs together in a nationwide initiative, this collaboration will ensure diverse perspectives are heard. 

Before moving forward with your application, be sure to browse Frequently Asked Questions here, which discuss details of the application process, the Learning Institute and what it means to volunteer as a Research Advocate.
