The Michael J. Fox Foundation awards a grant to the Adele Smithers Parkinson's Disease Treatment Center
September, 2012-August 2013
Joanne Donoghue, PhD, an exercise physiologist at the Center secured a grant examining the effect of Tyrosine on blood pressure responses in Parkinson's disease. Orthostatic hypotension is when blood pressure drops upon standing, creating a situation that increases the likelihood of a fall. This grant funds the examination of whether or not Tyrosine, a vitamin supplement, will improve blood pressure responses in Parkinson's disease. If you have Parkinson's disease, are between the ages of 45 and 80 years and are not currently taking medication for blood pressure and wish to volunteer for this study, contact Joanne Donoghue at 516-686-3759.
