Welcome to Health Unmuted

Does Parkinson’s only affect older people?  

A common misconception is that Parkinson’s disease only affects people in the later stages of life, but that isn’t always the case. 

Young-Onset Parkinson’s disease refers to people who are diagnosed much earlier, sometimes in their 20’s or 30’s.  

In this episode, we hear from three people who are living with Young-Onset Parkinon’s disease about their experiences, and the impact on and adjustments to their careers, health decisions and family life after diagnosis.
