Research Champion

Opportunity image

New treatments for people with Parkinson’s can’t come fast enough. With people affected by Parkinson’s involved at every step, we’re funding trailblazing science and transforming life with Parkinson’s.

As Research Champion you'll connect the local community to research; sharing news about events and opportunities to shape, steer and take part in research so they’re connected to, and part of, every breakthrough. Together, we will find a cure.

Time commitment varies, but most champions spend 30 minutes to an hour each month on their role.
