Lou highlights her experience as a veteran who served in South Vietnam and her path to becoming a Parkinson’s disease (PD) advocate. In 2003, she was diagnosed with Parkinson’s as a result of exposure to the herbicide Agent Orange during her service. For the past 30 years, she has been sharing her Vietnam experiences with students and community groups.

Lou is a steadfast PD advocate and has been involved with the Parkinson’s Foundation Heartland, and recently joined the Parkinson’s Foundation People with Parkinson’s Council. She has shared her PD experiences with groups across the country, including teaching a class on managing the emotional aspects of PD.
