Let’s Talk Caregiving, with Dave Iverson


Dave Iverson was a broadcast journalist who’d recently been diagnosed with Parkinson’s when he decided to do something he’d never quite imagined: he moved in to take care of his 95-year-old mom. His new book, Winter Stars, is the story of their decade-long caregiving odyssey, which lasted until Adelaide Iverson’s death at the age of 105. Join us for this free virtual “Let’s Talk Parkinson’s” event to hear more about Dave’s journey as a caregiver to his mother, while living with PD himself.

About our speaker: Among Dave Iverson’s many documentary specials for PBS are his Frontline films My Father, My Brother and Me, which explored his family’s battle with Parkinson’s, and Capturing Grace, which tells the story of what happened when a group of people with Parkinson’s disease joined forces with a legendary New York City dance company. Dave was also a radio and television host for nearly forty years, first at Wisconsin Public Broadcasting and then at San Francisco’s NPR affiliate KQED. Following his Parkinson’s diagnosis in 2004, he became a founding member of the Michael J. Fox Foundation’s Patient Council. He still dreams of running in one more New York City Marathon. Winter Stars is Dave’s first book. He and his wife Lynn live in Oakland, California and divide their time between the Bay Area and Boothbay Harbor, Maine.

This event is part of PCLA’s “Let’s Talk Parkinson’s” series of live online events. Special thanks to our program sponsors Abbott, Abbvie, Boston Scientific, Medtronic, and Supernus for making this series possible.
