“Parkinson’s disease affects over 8 million people worldwide, and advances in diagnostics and treatments can have a tremendous impact on the course of the disease. Our mission is to help people have a deeper understanding about their health, and creating accessible, engaging content is a key part of fulfilling that mission,” said Dan Kendall, founder of Mission Based Media and executive producer of Health Unmuted.

The podcast is available for free for listeners and was made possible with support from Altoida, a leading platform to improve drug development, research, and care for patients with neurological diseases including Parkinson’s.

“Our team at Altoida is delighted to partner with Mission Based Media to make the Parkinson’s Disease Podcast a reality," said Travis Bond, CEO at Altoida. “Our vision to unlock neurology diagnostics at scale and revolutionize brain health management aligns with the podcast’s goal of equipping listeners with the information and resources necessary to make informed health decisions. We are thrilled to collaborate with forward thinking partners to share the important stories behind neurological disease, and help pioneer innovative technologies in support.”

“Effective and accessible health education is critically important, particularly at the early stages of living with a chronic condition,” added Kendall. “Health Unmuted podcasts cover topics ranging from symptoms and diagnosis, through to lifestyle changes and treatment options. Each episode helps combat the misinformation that can lead to confusion, anxiety and poor outcomes.”

Find Health Unmuted podcasts on major podcast platforms including Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Amazon Music and Spotify, as well as HealthUnmuted.com.
