Connections: Dr. Ray Dorsey on his new book, "Ending Parkinson's Disease"

Apr 1, 2020

Dr. Ray Dorsey at the University of Rochester Medical Center has written a new book on Parkinson’s disease. The disease is the fastest growing neurological condition in the world. Dorsey’s book is a “prescription for action.” He outlines the causes for the disease – many of them environmental – and directives for how to prevent the condition.

He joins us this hour to discuss his research. We also hear from a local woman living with Parkinson’s disease. Our guests:

  • Dr. Ray Dorsey, M.D., David M. Levy Professor of Neurology, director of the Center for Health and Technology at the University of Rochester Medical Center, and author of "Ending Parkinson's Disease"
  • Yvonne Hylton, woman living with Parkinson’s disease
