The show will be hosted by Dan Keller, founder and president of Keller Broadcasting. He decided to partner with the Parkinson’s Foundation because he identified it as an area where people are hungry to get information.
“I think that when you have a substantial population of people with a certain condition, it’s worth getting the information out there,” Keller said. “And people are familiar with the medium, you don’t need a grandchild to help you figure out how to listen to a podcast.”
Each episode features field experts, such as physicians, physical therapists, personal trainers and doctors. The first eight episodes cover early warning signs of the disease, the foundation’s role in improving care, the benefits of exercise and nutrition, how to manage Parkinson’s fluctuations, levadopa delivery methods, nueroprotection, and vaccination.
“Podcasts are easily accessible, they are portable, and we keep them at a level that the public can understand — but try and make them scientifically accurate,” Keller said. “We are going to bring you the fruits of the research for people with Parkinson’s, so I think it’s stuff that people can incorporate into their daily lives.”
