The President of The Cure Parkinson’s Trust, Tom Isaacs, passed away unexpectedly on May 31st, at age 49. He was a trailblazer in the Parkinson’s community, and was diagnosed with the disease at 26 years old. His core and personal understanding of the disease, as well as his determination and advocacy, made him an incredible leader in the field.
He pushed several significant components crucial to Parkinson’s research that the Quebec Parkinson Network shares, such as the importance of clinical trial participation, and awareness initiatives.
The QPN offer our condolences to Tom’s family and The Cure Parkinson’s Trust team.
