Lessons learned from the pandemic
Play • 48 mins

In this episode, four guests join us virtually from around the world to discuss the ways life has changed during the pandemic, how they have managed – and the lessons to be learned from Covid-19.

Our first guest is Jens Greve from Germany, who was diagnosed with Parkinson’s in 2013 – and who, despite the challenges of the pandemic, has found solace in “rediscovering” family time. 

He is joined by Clare Addison from the UK, who has experienced the pandemic from contrasting angles as a neuroscience-specialised nurse who has herself lived with Parkinson’s since 2016.

Alongside them is Fulvio Capitanio, an Italian based in Spain, who has worked hard to overcome  the condition’s obstacles through lockdowns and social distancing mandates. And Maren Neumann-Aukthun, who joins us from Germany, shares why the connections she has seen being made during the pandemic help her to feel optimistic about the future. 

This episode was funded by Kyowa Kirin International, the specialty pharmaceutical company engaged in the treatment of unmet therapeutic needs.
