    18. SEASON 1 - EPISODE 14 Kevin Kwok tells his story including working with Big Pharma

    The Young Onset Parkinson's Network Podcast (YOPnetwork.org) is proud to present a conversation with Kevin Kwok!Kevin tells his story and discusses being an ambassador of Davis Phinney, his talks with DP and gives his insight of the pharma/biotech industry where he spent years building a great career.About Kevin"9 years ago, at the age of 48, I was diagnosed with Young Onset Parkinson’s Disease. After recovering from the shock of this diagnosis, I opted to embrace my disease. Having been trained as a clinician (PharmD- U of Michigan 1986) and a 30 year executive in the biopharma industry, I approach my disease with a unique involvement and curiosity at multiple levels. To quote Michael J Fox, “when you’ve seen a Parkinson’s patient, you’ve only seen one patient.” The issue is that no two PD patients are exactly alike, and this poses a dilemma in treating our tribe according to traditional clinical paradigms. This is where personalized medicine (PM) comes in. In the course of my presentation, I will share how my involvement in PM as a patient will both help me and others with this disease."
