The Status Quo is Not Acceptable. Let's Get Moving.

The path to groundbreaking discoveries is often paved with questions and challenges to the established order.

To drive real, tangible improvements in our field, we must be prepared to navigate the tensions that may arise in our professional relationships.

True advancement—true innovation—lies just beyond the comfort zone of consensus and familiarity. This journey may sometimes be uncomfortable, but it is in these moments of discomfort that growth occurs.

Let us remember the critical role of fully enrolled clinical trials. They are the foundation upon which the safety and efficacy of new treatments are validated. Achieving full enrollment is a testament to our collective effort and commitment to this cause. It is a non-negotiable step towards bringing hope and relief to those affected by Parkinson’s.

Improving requires us  – all of us –  to be fearless in questioning the accepted, diligent in our pursuit of knowledge, and unwavering in our commitment to collaboration and improvement. Let’s embrace the tensions that lead to growth, never settling for the easy path, for it is in these moments of challenge that we find our greatest opportunities for advancement.
