One of the more difficult issues people who are diagnosed with Parkinson’s at a young age face is how they are going to manage their work life. During this session, the eight members of our YOPD Council discussed:
- How (and if) to share your diagnosis with your boss and colleagues
- How to continue working and still do all it takes to live well with Parkinson’s
- How to plan for an uncertain future of employment
- How to advocate for yourself at work
- How to change careers and/or find more meaning along your career path
- And much more
Here’s the handout we talked about during the session.
