In conversation with local Parkinson’s Disease researcher, Jane Peek, Tim will speak about his bold decision to undergo Deep Brain Stimulation, the experience of doing so and his reflections on life since his treatment.

Join us as we share the story of one very special man’s experience of undergoing a cutting edge treatment in the face of a neurodegenerative condition.
