This is a web-based study; travel is not required

Recruitment Information:

Seeking volunteers with following diagnosis: PD Study Type: Observational
Eligible Ages: 18 - 100 Status: Recruiting

Study Purpose:

Fox Insight gathers health and genetic information from thousands of people with Parkinson’s through the online platform: www.foxinsight.org.

People with Parkinson’s living in the US can complete one study visit to unlock eligibility for genetic testing from 23andMe and genetic counseling at no cost. Researchers study this information to better understand Parkinson's disease and speed scientific breakthroughs. Study participation does not require any travel – all you need is an internet connection.What to expect:Fox Insight volunteers are invited to take part in a virtual study visit every three months.

Volunteers log into www.foxinsight.org to complete surveys on health-related topics. Each study visit is different, with new questions and information to share. Volunteers are emailed about upcoming study visits and are free to complete study visits at their own pace. Just like your first visit with a new doctor, the first study visit takes longer than the rest of your study visits.

More ways to contribute to research:

Volunteers can also share their perspectives through extra surveys and studies that collect more data from a smaller group. People with Parkinson's can make a unique contribution to research by sharing their genetic information allowing researchers learn more about the disease and develop precision medicines. Fox Insight partners with 23andMe to provide genetic testing and counseling at no cost to people with Parkinson's living in the US. After completing one study visit, volunteers are eligible to participate. Learn more at www.23andme.com/pd/

Why it matters:

Fox Insight collects health and genetic information from thousands of people globally and volunteers contribute to a growing community of people who are changing the way Parkinson’s research is done. This means scientists can examine data from more individuals than a traditional research study. And what scientists learn can help speed breakthroughs in Parkinson's research.Join today:You can register for Fox Insight at www.foxinsight.org.
