Young Onset Parkinson’s Network founder Anna Grill

Young Onset Parkinson’s Network was inspired by the personal experience of Anna Grill. She was diagnosed with YOPD at age 38, which means she’s not only been in your shoes, she walks in them daily. Anna will join us to share her story and how Young Onset Parkinson’s Network helps our community.
