Darcy Blake

Patient Leader

I'm a community awareness blogger/advocate for Parkinson's disease. On my blog, www.parkinsonswomen.com I cover local events, researchers, clinical workers and doctors, and offer support and observation to those who work/live with PD. I helped to organize Parkinson's Women Support (PWS), a support group for women that has expanded to 4 chapters in Northern California. The PWS presents an annual Women & PD symposium for the local community. I'm an advocate for the Parkinson's Disease Foundation Women and PD Initiative. I was the community chair of the first Moving Day in San Jose, CA for National Parkinson Foundation. I was also a Michael J Fox Foundation Policy Forum Advocate in Wash DC.
