Study Background

Parkinson’s Research with Inclusion, Diversity, and Equity (“PRIDE”) focuses on understanding the health and health care needs of the LGBTQIA+ and non-LGBTQIA+ communities living with Parkinson’s disease. For this research study, we are enrolling LGBTQIA+ adults living with Parkinson’s disease OR LGBTQIA+ caregivers providing care to someone with Parkinson’s. 

If you are eligible to participate, we will ask you to complete a 45-minute telephone interview exploring your knowledge, perceptions, and experiences as an LGBTQIA+ caregiver or person with Parkinson’s disease. 

Your participation in this study may help researchers find ways to improve health and care of LGBTQIA+ people living with Parkinson’s disease. Further research today and join our remote study!
