When you have a chronic, progressive condition like Parkinson’s disease, there is always something new to learn. But access to information and resources about Parkinson’s varies for individuals and communities. Dr. Claudia Martinez, the Hispanic outreach coordinator at the Muhammad Ali Parkinson Center at the Barrow Neurological Institute in Phoenix, Arizona, a Parkinson’s Foundation Center of Excellence, describes the methods she uses to help Hispanic people with Parkinson’s get the best possible care. She also talks about Parkinson’s programs that are available to Spanish speakers in Phoenix, across the United States, and around the world.
