My MOPD Foundation has received a $10,000 grant from the Peyton Anderson Foundation of Macon.
The funds are for purchase and eventual distribution of 2,000 copies of “Counterpunch” to 360 frontline physicians around the state allied with Mercer Medical School. Each physician will receive five books to form a lending library for patients.
I believe this project is a first in the country. I salute Mercer Med for its leadership under Dean Jean Sumner, a noted rural health activist.
Distribution will begin to physicians in Macon-Bibb with a Sept.1 target date. After evaluation and process validation, we will complete distribution to remaining Georgia offices in person or by mail.
This is a great win for Parkinson’s sufferers today and to come. Parkinson’s people rarely receive information about their condition at diagnosis and are abandoned to the wiles of the internet and worse. I believe “Counterpunch” provides the information needed to take action against this mystifying malady, The Rodney Dangerfield of diseases.
