Board Member - Vanessa Blais
Position: Member at Large
Why do you volunteer for the APDA MA Chapter?
I began working with the Parkinson’s community during college and have found everyone to be extremely supportive and involved. I am happy the APDA MA Chapter has given me the chance to contribute to such a great cause.
When did you first join the Board?
I first began working with the APDA MA Chapter and the Information & Referral Center in 2009, as a research assistant at Boston University. After completing my degree in 2011, I returned to BU and joined the Board as an Advisor. I became a Member at Large this year.
I spent half my senior year of college studying in Perugia, Italy.
What do you want to see the APDA MA Chapter accomplish over the next year?
I would like to see more people take an active volunteering role in Chapter events.
