Parkinson's and Positivity - Clyde Campbell (Shake it Up) and Wesley Della Volla (Georgetown University)
Manage episode 302711310 series 2813275
Today, we’ve got a two part episode focusing on a topic we haven’t talked about at all on the podcast, Parkinson’s disease. To help us explore the experience of people living with Parkinson’s, we have the CEO of the Shake it Up Foundation, Clyde Campbell, and in the second half of the show, immersive storyteller and friend of pod, Wesley Della Volla.
Clyde shares the story of how his diagnosis propelled him into the field of Parkinson’s research, and how The Shake it Up Foundation is pairing Australian researchers with the Michael J. Fox Foundation in the US to help slow, stop and cure Parkinson’s.
Wesley is an Adjunct Lecturer at Georgetown University and Founder of Meridian TreeHouse in Washington. Wesley has an extensive career working in the immersive storytelling space with National Geographic, particularly through our favourite medium, virtual reality. As you’ll hear in the interview, his focus changed after his diagnosis with young onset Parkinson’s, and he’s passionate about building transformative virtual experiences for people with neuro-diversity and physical limitations.
As always if you enjoy the show, please take the time to rate and review us on Apple Podcasts or wherever you get your pods. It means a great deal to the show and will make it easier for other potential listeners to find us.
