Parkinson's study needs volunteers

Volunteers are needed for a study looking at whether a short paper and pencil test can determine changes in memory and thinking in those with Parkinson’s disease.

To be eligible, volunteers should be at least 65-years-old, have been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease, have color vision, and have a friend or family member who can answer questions about the volunteer.

This study is funded by the Michael J. Fox Foundation. The Michael J. Fox Foundation is dedicated to finding a cure for Parkinson’s disease through an aggressively funded research agenda and to ensuring the development of improved therapies for those living with Parkinson’s today.

For more information, contact Daymond Wagner at 717-531-1804. The study director is Dr. David Gill, Department of Neurology.

This research study has been approved by the Institutional Review Board, under federal regulations at Penn State Hershey Medical Center, Penn State College of Medicine.
