In Memorium: Tom Isaacs
Influential PWP* Tom Isaacs passed away on Wednesday, June 1. Tom was just 49, and had lived with Parkinson's for 22 years, never letting it slow his work or drive. He founded the UK's Cure Parkinson's Trust, Parkinson's Movement, and participated vigorously in every single World Parkinson Congress (WPC) since it launched in 2006. Tom spoke in Seattle at the 2015 HOPE Conference, and was one of our most popular, moving and hilarious speakers ever.
From everyone at NWPF, Tom, you will be missed.
