The Cheyenne PD Support Group applied for and was awarded a PCORI grant to study ‘Quality of Care for the Wyoming Parkinson’s Community’.
At this point, we are really just doing research on feasible ideas on which to do research.
The whole reason for PCORI grants is to make sure that the ideas being researched are ideas that have been brought up by ‘shareholders’ of the PD community. Those shareholders being: the PD patients themselves, their caretakers and family, the medical personnel and tertiary medical personnel (such as physical therapists, massage therapists)
PLEASE! WE NEED YOUR IDEAS!
Please see the attached information on the PCORI research grant here.
Feel free to share your ideas with us by contacting Dr. Christopher Herron – Lead researcher (and PD sufferer for 17+ years) at firstname.lastname@example.org or Sandra Sundin – Administrator of PCORI Grant #7736942 at email@example.com or (307) 274-0057.
