Parkinson’s Stories: Luc Larochelle, Journalist

post

Luc Larochelle is a La Presse columnist who was diagnosed with Parkinson’s three years ago. He is also a QPN member who hopes to contribute to the advancement of Parkinson’s research.

He recently wrote an article about his time at the Sherbrooke Parkinson’s Congress, which he attended as a reporter and as a fellow PD patient: http://www.lapresse.ca/la-tribune/actualites/201705/04/01-5094938-vivre-dans-un-corps-dane.php

He wrote this article about the same event after speaking with a Neurologist and another Parkinson’s patient, Linda Bérard: http://www.lapresse.ca/la-tribune/actualites/201705/05/01-5095332-cinq-annees-de-plus-de-qualite-de-vie.php

This last article was written by Larochelle after speaking with Dr. Marcelle Roy, whose own Parkinson’s diagnosis eventually led to her leaving her family medicine clinic earlier than she’d wanted to. http://www.lapresse.ca/la-tribune/actualites/201705/05/01-5095349-les-cauchemars-qui-revelent-la-verite.php
