7 years ago, just as Creative Director Emma’s company was redesigning the Parkinson’s UK website, Emma was diagnosed herself with Young Onset Parkinson’s. She was aged just 29. Yet Emma has gone on to do more in those 7 years than she ever expected to achieve in a lifetime.
Her journey has taken her from an unexpected diagnosis to winning multiple awards, featuring in a BBC television documentary and articles in the Guardian, Evening Standard and Cosmopolitan, reaching out to other young women. Emma is now co-founder of tech startup More Human, a blogger, author and stand-up comedian.
Emma will share her personal story of how being diagnosed with Parkinson’s at a young age has changed her view of the condition and of life in general.
