This season we are talking a lot about Parkinson’s advocacy. From advocating for yourself with your doctor to people with Parkinson’s communicating with law makers, and others who are educating, participating in research or sharing their story whether through a podcast, a blog, a book, Social Media, magazines, or one on one conversations with a friend.

In this episode of When Life Gives You Parkinson’s, host Larry Gifford introduces you to Parkinson’s advocate Christine Jeyachandran. Christine is an Australian living in Peru with her family. They met in Japan at the World Parkinson Congress where she was a finalist in the video competition. Her video tracked her journey to learn gymnastics with PD and ultimately achieve a handstand. Now Christine brings hope, urgency and education to her Parkinson’s advocacy through her website and videos at www.handstandforparkinson.com.
