A Conversation with Brian Grant and Davis Phinney episode summary

Brian Grant had a long and successful 12-year career in basketball. In 2008, at age 36, Brian was diagnosed with Parkinson’s. Davis Phinney was an Olympic Bronze medalist and Tour de France stage winner who claimed the most victories of any cyclist in American history. In 2000, at age 40, Davis was diagnosed with Parkinson’s. Since being diagnosed, both of these athletes have made it their mission to do everything they can to thrive not just survive with Parkinson’s, and inspire others to do the same.

In this genuine, inspiring, and relatable conversation, Brian and Davis talk about their experiences as athletes receiving a Parkinson’s diagnosis, their difficulties in accepting the physical and mental challenges that have occurred with the progression of their Parkinson’s, and how and why they are passionate about living well with Parkinson’s each and every day. We hope you enjoy it!
