The University of Rochester in collaboration with the National Parkinson Foundation (NPF) is conducting a national study called Connect.Parkinson. This study will examine the feasibility and effectiveness of using video calls to bring expert Parkinson’s disease care directly to patients’ homes. Around 200 people with Parkinson’s disease across the country will see a Parkinson’s disease expert via video calls on a computer, tablet, or smartphone, over the course of one year.
