The 2014 CBSA Awards Dinner closed with a keynote address by Olympic cycling medalist and Parkinson’s advocate Davis Phinney. Phinney, diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 2000 at the age of 40, founded the Boulder-based Davis Phinney Foundation in 2004. Today, Phinney is both a role model in the cycling community and an inspiration to the estimated 1.5 million Americans and estimated 10 million worldwide who are currently living with the disease. Tens of thousands of people living with this disease have been directly touched by one of the Davis Phinney Foundation programs or through Davis Phinney’s inspirational message: “it is possible to live well with Parkinson’s today.” For more information, visit: http://www.davisphinneyfoun... and http://www.medtronicdbs.com.......
