Moxie on Mars: The Mars Oxygen In-Situ Resource Utilization Experiment

"For the very first time is going to try to use something outside of earth as a resource. I briefly mentioned this instrument last week. Know when i was talking about the perseverance. Mars rover and it contains the the rover contains a new instrument that potentially could be one of the most profound events of the mission. And it's called. Moxie as steve keeps like he just loves the word right. Don't you steve. Sure it'd be a really cute and for girlfriend you know. It's a really cool word. So if successful this mission will prove to be the beginning of being able to send astronauts home from mars and also impart. Keep them alive now. I'm being vague deliberately. Because i'm filling your brain with secondary information. And then you'll see what i do so at the size of a car battery. This gold colored prototype requires how much energy guys three one. third of. The rovers energy one third of perseverance. Gigawatts is coming is going to this part now. Like i said this is not part of the rovers primary mission and when it performs its function. It's gonna run at eight hundred degrees celsius or one thousand. Four hundred seventy two degrees fahrenheit guys this touch it so incredibly hot that the engineers had to use the best insulating material known to man to protect perseverance from it. Boxy stands for mars. Oxygen institute resource utilization experiment. So it function. Its function is actually similar to that of a tree in that it will intake carbon dioxide which there's plenty of because the mars atmosphere is literally co two. That is the atmosphere of mars so after its processes done. It'll output pure oxygen into the martian atmosphere and this is not for terror forming purposes call. Oh my god bob. How would that be if we started. Tear forming mars in the next thirty years like just try to change the atmosphere of mars. Send up a billion moxie happen jay. Carbon go out. I'm going to tell you everything. Steve but in my own way in my way okay. So on future missions the oxygen would be used for what for fuel and breathing fuel breathing. Oxygen is perfect for so clearly future astronauts will be depending on the future versions of moxie. So like i said. The martian atmosphere is one hundred times less dense than earth You know that doesn't mean that there isn't a huge abundance of co two because that's what it is all the all the air that's there is is co two and nasa plans on turning moxie on about twelve times during the next two earth years and that should do it that should be enough for engineers to be able to suss it all out. So what they're predicting is that. It will produce between six and ten grams of oxygen per hour and that is enough oxygen to keep a small mammal like a skunk or fox or twenty two lowland streaked kendricks look really cute. But this look them up. They're cute as hell. Twenty two just going by body weight if we're testing it now to see if it successfully functions on mars why couldn't they just test it on earth. Well the fact is we did but you have to keep in mind. That mars is dusty. It's very cold minus sixty two celsius minus eighty one fahrenheit. There's there's no predicting the ways that this thing can fail like any other device. So that's why we we want to bring it to mars and test it

"Find a cure and i thought about that. And y'all been immediate my whole life and telling stories on the storyteller and i the national director of talk radio here in canada for for a company and we have tv stations and huge website. Well i have the platform. I've got the ability to gel story in here. I am hiding my disease from even my my colleagues rely co workers and so i thought well if i don't do it who will then. That's how we started the podcast with life gives you parkinson's it. It's it's really a platform to share the stories. And what i found was the fears that i had were unwarranted because the support that i get back now from not just my family and friends of my colleagues in my workplace is just unbelievable and you pretty much like whatever you need. A lot of snow and they. They've been there at every. Turn of everything i've done including they distributed podcast and give me promotional time on radio and tv. It's talk about it and to raise awareness of arkansas. And so you obviously not. Everybody has that opportunity but whatever that is for you the also people put it on facebook. Some people don't some everybody's different so whatever you're comfortable with. There's no right answer. You don't have to tell your work but you feel comfortable enough you can and you know it but you can ask You know there's a lot of people here to ask michael. J. fox has a lot of great resources. You can other guide for the newly diagnosed parkinson's so just check out the resource area of the michael j. fox website and you'll be able to get some more information on that We're going to transition into building your character. And we've talked about the the neurologist and movement disorder specialist dr less maybe you define the difference between a neurologist and movement disorder specialists like what is the what. What are the differences in their roles as as it pertains to parkinson's and what would you prefer. What's the preferred You know roll a neurologist or would you rather somebody with parkinson's see movement disorders plus okay great question. So let's start off by saying that when adopted does go to neurology residency. They get general training at then. You decide that you want to be a caught a sabella ship a fellowship is something where you do. Focus training for one to two years on one thing such as epilepsy or stroke are movement disorders. Women sorters comprises parkinson's disease. Essential tremor circled estonia huntington's disease and other movement disorders. Okay so you usually. People will find a general neurologist initially because they don't know the difference and or specialists exists in the term meats. And so if you do know that you think you're having symptoms of parks of parkinson. Ism are parkinson disorder parkinson's syndrome which is also novice then which you wanna do you want initially seek out a movement disorder specialists okay because that person as bill saying that person is going to Symptoms or not very obvious. Depp specialists going to be able to tease out easier. And usually dan a john rogers and so everyone everyone presents differently. Some people may present with trimmer. Some come in my office and said well. I don't even think. I have parkinson's because i have no you don't have to have trimmer have parkinson's disease. So when someone does this every single day of their life. That's important to do now. The important thing also knows that any generale's could call themselves is based on them. Saying i just do a lot of patients so what you wanna do. Is you want to add. There's there's no. There's no board exam for the disorder fellowships as sub special. So what you wanna do you wanna ask have you done a fellowship in movement disorders. Is that dr bells ship trained in movement disorders. Are they calling them this. Because his based on the scene a lot of people in their clinic right so the other thing. I wanna to point out. Is that a movement or a specialists as you. Go through your journey. We parkinson's disease it If there's no cookie cutter treatment everybody is different to support groups. Online forums works for you work for someone else. Some patients come in. They want to avoid medication. Some patients come in and they want medication now and they want more aggressive. We're we're in tuned to getting to know our patients in knowing what they what you know. Kind of how to implement that therapy and try to do. We know all the programs such as There's a lot of exercise programs out there that we could do. As you progress the parkinson disease there will be things that may come up such as blood pressure changes or instead of hypertension bladder problems Dementia on a life within ten years. Fifteen years or so psychosis sleep problems and we tend to treat those things as well instead of sending you to psychiatrists or urologists are two cardiologists. So it's almost like a comprehensive one stop shop and informational resource for patients where you'll know all these programs. Michael j. fox are the ppo disorder. Specialist is going to go to national conferences research conferences. And they're gonna be they're gonna know all the things available for you to get your resources and things that you'd naturally without medication right.

Options dr saint hilaire taking a high level. Look at how. What are the latest techniques for treating a dose parkinson's patient. You know everybody comes to the diagnosis from a different point. Some people have read a lot about parkinson's and might have already made their opinion. Other people have family members had parkinson or no people have harkinson other. People don't know anything about arkansas. So one thing i would. We ever diagnosed or discuss. The diagnosis is we have to gauge. Where the person is in the in the did you know it along the path. And you don't just have them thinking about what they are doing now that they can they can do now when the could in the past so you know. So having difficulties in doing activities of daily living our hobbies or functioning at work. But i'll be reasons to start medication. Patients who are not very disabled by distance dems and prefer next to start medication. And that's also a good choice for them if it works for them usually The way we start medications. You need to start. Medication is we. We look at the primary and the age of the person and the other medical dish in general. I mean it's really very.

Dr saint hilaire. Thank you for being here. You find letting me all right. So we have a full panel a lot to get to And for the newly diagnosed this may we're going to try to keep this as as top line as began but informational because there is we get into the weeds and we don't want to do that but We will promise you that there will be many takeaways. I encourage you to take notes Because you'll wanna follow up. Maybe this questions with your own urologist. Our movement disorder specialist after this webinar. So what is parkinson's phil. What a great question here. Parkinson's year parkinson ism a and what is the difference in. What do i have like. I i remember when i first got diagnosed like yes probably parkinson's and i'm like i have no idea like in my head and look. I have no idea what that means. I know what michael j. fox added mohammed ali eh. What do they have. I don't know my hand didn't do it. There's does why don't we go ahead and define parkinson's disease dr lists go. What what what are some of the comments symptoms. And what exactly is parkinson's so parkinson parkinson's. He is a neurological disorder of the brain that affects primarily movement and so far disease affects multiple chemicals in the brain but the one that is most popular dope me and when you have that lack of dopamine you can have slowness of movement which is really. How parkinson's google kinda start for a lot of people in the beginning. The second could be tremor and also fitness in this usually will on one side of the body or the uae times happens your dominant side artisan for everyone and the is is that you get to enroll disorder specialist which will go in later but as parkinson's develops rickaby more new symptoms. You develop that. The other chemicals that becomes deficient in his start to manifest. And that's why it's really important. Educate yourself and get in early. See someone i think. One of the surprising things is at least it was for me is i was collecting symptoms. But i didn't realize they were related. I just getting older. How how does somebody know that inside just aches and pains or the. Oh it's an essential tremor as you know it's nothing to worry about like people At least i kind of just sort of dismissed them all until it was there was enough of them. I'm like something's wrong here You encountered that quite a bit. Yes so frequently. What happens with parkinson's disease and other parkinson disorders is that you'd have non physical signs start to happen before the physical size. And if you're not aware this in you're not you're not educated on it like programs like yours have done a great job. In educating people and social media community there's a disorder called rem sleep behavior disorder. That could be a warning side where people will fight out their dreams and some people get them. Confused with nightmares are sleepwalking. This is where the person asleep and they are actually or kicking are yelling at someone they can even roll out of bed. This can have twenty years before you have your first physical sign of parkinson disease. If you all of a sudden lose your smell explanation. That could be a sign of not in parkinson's disease. Sometimes it happens. In alzheimer's parkinson's disease is more popular for that to happen in in also other things such a. They're soft or signs like constipation. Depression anxiety could happen as well but the big thing that we know is abnormal is if you're acting out your dreams because sixty to eighty percent of those patients will develop a parkinson disorder like parkinson's disease multiple system. Atrophy are lewy body dementia. Great thank you Let's fuck about the path of navigating. Parkinson's disease i e. Everybody's journey is so different. And i know early on dr single layer it. It's it's it's hard not to go. Well that person has this symptom or on that. There's a comparison going on especially between the newly diagnosed Can you talk about you. Know how how unique everybody's journey is and why it's important to really just focus on your own health balser. Everybody has a different progression and his on different medications but for most people. It thinks at least two years to get to a diagnosis of Nothing unusual patients have seen orthopedic surgeon before or You know sleep specialist. Because they're acting out their dreams. Like douglas mentioned so people can get to the movement disorders specialists two different pathways. Some people. it's physical therapist. Who said no. You should go see a neurologist show might might take a while to get diagnosed because we still don't have a specific test for the diagnosis is made clinically so important. Somebody who is experienced in diagnosing parkinson like a movement disorder specialists and initially when we see a patient who might not be sure. It's parkinson disease because they are various causes of arkansas. So parkinson is a few here. The parkinson's on it could it's rela term. That covers parkinson's disease but other causes of arkansas symptoms like sometimes it's caused by medications some it's caused by condition like malta system atrophy which mentioned so the mood disorder specialists role is to try to tease out relieved. What is the cost of your parkinson's symptoms and initially. It might be difficult because we still don't have a test. That's why michael j. fox is doing that.

Michael j. fox wrote in his new book a. parkinson's condition i rarely contemplated before now much less spoke of is cognitive. Change loss of memory confusion. What am i thinking. And how am i doing and frankly he speaks for a lot of us in the parkinson's community especially when it's first starts to happen. You're like oh. Is that parkinson's or is that me getting older. And and how do you notice the difference in how to maneuver through that. So i'm going to start with you. Rachel probably bring him melissa. But like when you know that it's actually a part of the parkinson's disease instead of just old age. Well i think exactly like you said it's such a sensitive topic and it so hard to talk about people with without parkinson's and people tell us so regularly though that this is one of the things that they really worry about. That people with parkinson's worry about that. Their families worry about and we sort of do a disservice by not talking about it so as much as we can as comfortable as we can ever get with this tough topic. It's so important to talk about it. And that's i'm so glad we're having this conversation that we have people who are joining us to talk about their experience because the more we can open up this dialogue the better we can get at tackling these tough issues and having these regular conversations with loved ones and with our doctors who can help us along. So let's bring dr armstrong melissa. Let's just start at the very basics. What is cognitive issues. Cognitive decline or kneel cognitive problem. How do you define cognition on. I talk about it and parkinson's i really like to use the term memory and thinking because that really captures that when we think about memory and age and thinking we also offer focus on that memory piece of it but when we think about cognition. It's a lot more than memory it is. How do we multitask. How do we pay attention to things. How do we understand where objects are in space. How do we use our flow. Still think about cognition. It's memory and thinking and so melissa cognition memory in thinking they can they do change naturally with age right but then they also can change with parkinson's so how do.

"You had mentioned the importance of urgency earlier as you grow. The organization grows in two hundred million dollar years of investment every year. Does it become harder to have that urgency. I think that urgency is a state of mind and a practice. So i don't think i don't think you lose it intentionally. What i've seen in witnessed and taught could speak more to this as well. Is that the further. We've gotten into this. The war complex. Some of the the scientific opportunities have become or the orchestration around some of the biggest needs in terms of scientific leadership in breakthrough in. So it's not that we're less urgent but there are times when what we're trying to accomplish is extremely complex and were wise. We are wise to devote the right amount of time to getting that right. There's no point in rushing to the wrong actions and so today. I think you know it's a bigger ship but i'm really. I remain impressed with our a program team's ability to really adapt and evolve and respond and lead and all those things have to be done thoughtfully and so urgency. I think one of the things. I'm most proud of is when i get the chance to connect with with people out in the community and people who know us well or people who are just meeting us and maybe i'm the second person they've met from the fox foundation. You know one of the most consistent. Things i hear is the how people in our community experienced the fox foundation team. And you hear the values that michael ni- felt strongly about kind of reflected back in the way in which the team interacts with everybody that we engage with their heart and head put to work on Doing whatever it takes to to move the dial. And and i think that you know that reminds me. I get that constant reminder that urgency is one of those things and it certainly valued by the the people with parkinson's in their and their loved ones tug. She invoked your name. So i'm going to bring you into the conversation. You entered the michael j. fox foundation when it was four years old. How hard is it to have that urgency as you grow and grow and grow Yeah thanks larry i. Maybe i'll make a few comments just to add into a debbie said in use my liberty to answer your question. I one of the things. I think i was in the scientific community in two thousand so i got to see the foundation. I from that side and then as i joined as you said in two thousand and four sort of seeing it grow and develop from the inside i mean. What are the things about urgency. That i think was clear from the beginning Which is still very active at the foundation relates to even a discussion that you were having with debbie around the science being ahead of the money. One of the other things that debbie and michael really emphasized from the beginning was also to focus.

Always are you said the title is an optimist considers mortality which seems pretty timely in the era that we're living in of. Cova. But the book really focuses on his experiences during twenty eighteen. It is funny as that title in a year like this when so many people are being asked to to grapple with such a difficult times of loss and sickness and fear, and really all the things that genuinely do make up our own mortality. and Michael didn't know any of those things when Miss Book title was written you know again, that was all going back to twenty nineteen or even before so. You know what the book really is about and I think this is You know. So interesting about Michael he knows very well. THAT HE IS A. Celebrated as the emblem of. Optimism and hope and grace and courage and what I think he's exploring in this book is what are the limits of that kind of approach? What does it mean to feel like you're losing your optimism because it's just one thing after another so I haven't read the book yet. I can only imagine the beautiful things that he is going to have to say about this, and again, what a gift to all of us to have a story like that to read in a year like twenty twenty. So it's just another thing that you know I feel. So grateful to Michael, forgiving us and I, and I can't wait I can't wait to read it and I can't wait for everyone to be talking about it. You'll be able to buy Michael's book wherever you enjoy buying your books. Yeah. Now, you can probably get you know these days. People can probably just pick it up on Amazon unlike when I started at the Fox sedation that I had to actually walk into a into a noble. In a typical year, we have a big November gala for the Michael J. Fox Foundation, but covid nineteen Blah So we are planning very cool Virtual Research Roundtable November seventeenth marking twenty years of the Michael J.. Fox, Foundation. What should we expect? This is going to be such a fun highlight of our fall I. Hope everyone will come sign up and hang out with us for the research. Roundtable because what we're GONNA do is really cover off on some of the highlights of twenty years of research progress in Parkinson's. Not just the role of the foundation. But what these new developments mean for people living with the disease whether you have the disease or someone you love has the disease and you know some of the exciting really science-fiction he kinds of Projects that we see coming down the line in the next year, you know in spite of covert lots of progress remains everything from targeting our NA in new drugs.

Fox Foundation, I called the person who hired me at that time the VP of communications and I said, are there any books I should read? So I had worked in research, a communications of really my whole life but. I didn't know that much typically about Parkinson's is I. I came into this job and I said thirty bucks I should read and she said well, I, don't know if there's really a Parkinson's book but you know you should read Michael's memoir lucky man. So. I. Will Never Forget to remember Barnes and noble that I walked into This is two thousand five. So Amazon was not even profitable yet Larry and you know and I walked in and I found his little book in the in the memoirs section. And I thought. Well, you know I'm going to read this this weekend I'm like doing my homework. And I started reading it. It is like he is an amazing writer and it was like I couldn't put it down. So that was how I started to come to know that Michael is such a gifted communicator and storyteller and bat book you know just stayed with me, and of course, now in my job, I have all of his books and he kinda teases me because they're very dog-eared. So. I.

But until that time these new compounds. To a certain extent and for me again, fortunate have allowed me to get back to pretty much a normal can do the things I love to do and and allowed to do that while we continue to wait. For those disease, modifying drugs and believe me I'm an optimist I. Think you have to come and due in large part to the foundation are the as are these first three things that we have come down pipeline to help patients and I think that's so important to point out that as we're so focused on a cure and closing our doors were also at the same time focused on making people's lives better today, and so we did fund early development of Breda. Over a million dollars on early stage clinical trials there we funded scales to measure disconnect to help enable the development of covering and these drugs are helping people today there are a lot of benefits to them. The impact is related to people in our capability and I seen a strengthen that capability over the. Last. Really. Ten years if you will and that is. Really getting people in a position with the skills and capabilities, tell choose that Broadway programs but still the wants to have the highest probability of success and then I think the other thing is getting much better at holding people accountable for delivering results and making sure that the money we're spending is going to yield the last possible probability of a positive result and it falls both in the area of drugs for today that helped with success symptoms.

So I'm just wondering whether or not there is a way and I'll start with you Alison Willis that that as a community we can perhaps model what it means to work together to find solutions for those common concerns rather than being so divided both. Well I. Think what we're doing right now today is a great example of how we can begin to have. Meaningful dialogues about. policies and laws that are important to individuals who have Parkinson's disease, those who care for them and those who loved them. and. See that. Shared concerns, our shared struggles are nonpartisan. And work together to try to alleviate those concerns to address those concerns by following the science by advocating for healthcare policies that expand access in red and allow for prescription drugs to be affordable.

"It has been funded over the past two years I believe and funding is in you know in place for the coming year. So we feel very good about about that We feel better about the partnership that we've been able to create with the CDC and building out. A lot of you know MS and Parkinson's are the two diseases that they chose to do I as a pilot to just. Enable proof of concept to make sure that what was fashioned in the law is possible. So we're feeling good about that. And I'm GonNa, take the opportunity and dovetail immediately into the state registries because. One of the reasons state registries are so important is the data collected in those states will flow up into the national surveillance system. Because the surveillance system as enacted only has funding that would pretty much able the CDC. To determine prevalence with with specificity or with confidence. But because of the state registries, that date is going to be able to flow into the surveillance system making it a much more powerful research database. So we're excited about that In terms of other states Paul. Just let you know that Nebraska is the longest Parkinson's registry Utah did create one. As, well with California being the biggest one that is generating you know by far the most data. Given a fantasy situation where the coronavirus. The state was. Not Going to fund the registry anymore even though they had invested three point, seven million dollars to build it out the we ended up issuing a grant of the state of California in order to keep that registry going you know meant you know mentioned to that You know high the state senator that has drafted a bill and to to create a registry. He's going to introduce the next year and that happens because he knows whenever advocates in Ohio. And made the connection to Parkinson's and what can I do? That's an example of how an advocate connection is enabling us to possibly get another registry and one of largest seats in the country to great point head and a good I think motivation for all of us to be engaged at the local level because that's where some of these differences can begin to be made and as Ted sfjazz spy creating these registries at the state. Level, and then we'll make the national registry that much more robust and I think it also speaks well of what the Michael J. Fox Foundation can do. One of the things. One of the many things foundation does is to step in when needed and this was a case where the the Michael J. Fox stepped in and help sustain the effort in California during time in California and of course. So many states are deeply challenged by the pandemic.

To care and This is actually you know something that is relatively new to the Fox Foundation we could talk a little bit more about when and why we of brought this into our into the fold of our mission but what I think is so exciting about the October Fifteenth Event and many people may have already voted because I know that voting is a little different. This year a lot of people are doing it earlier they're doing it by mail. But what we're hoping to on October fifteenth a couple of weeks before the election is really bring together, just a sink conversation for everyone in our community to know what issues to watch in this election. So about no matter how those individual races may turn out we know where what ball to keep our eye on and where are advocacy efforts need to lie, and by the way I should just mention. Larry of course, as a five Oh one C. Three Organization the foundation can never get involved in advocating for specific candidates or campaigns.

We're GONNA have stories of other people who are doing the run walk with you by the way in Tennessee to fire way to do this, I, just want you to know we've had people sign up from as far away as Switzerland.

I can't wait to part of it sounds Great Rachel when when I was first diagnosed my gate was so bad I could barely walk and so I thought why on Earth would an organization taunt me by suggesting I run a five cater raise research dollars. But but we should take a minute to explain why exercise is so important for people with Parkinson's.

"Absolutely. So my experience from writing comprehensive review article, and basically all of apathy logic studies we have human research with toxicants associate with Parkinson's disease and Paraquat is absolutely one of those pesticides. Dot has a very strong association with Parkinson's and now isn't limited to only professional use in the united. States but has been banned in many other countries. So I think it's Really, forward, thinking and important that Michael J. Fox Hound Asian as advocating more regulation and limitation of the use of this compound and then there are other types of compounds as well. Organophosphate, which are another form of pesticides that unfortunately have been an household compounds as well. organofluorines. I'm certain metals like manganese exposure that can happen and certain types of factories or industries, and then. PCB's which are fatty soluble compounds that are no longer and industrial use, but are still very residual in long lasting and fatty fish. So I think a big takeaway I have from my reading and research about this is that these effects are very long lasting. You know a person can get exposed early in life and have continued effects, years and years after the fact, and then also these compounds. Can last in the environment for a very long time and still post continued risks. So constant reevaluation of the compounds that we're using and knowledge about the standing effects I think is gonna be a constant process. So it's great to have some advocacy on this topic to have our safety committees really reevaluating compounds not just when they're released for us but years after the release to reevaluate safety group to. I was just gonNA Reiterate what? Dr. Patio said. that it's it's really important that exposure you know you might think that when you get exposed, you would show symptoms. at the same time, but it turns out that a lot of the development of symptoms occurs a long long period after the exposure was taking place, but there's this latent period that. is up in some cases up two decades long and We've we're using rotenone.

So we cannot forget about the people there at the. At the front, you know the line trying to take care and so we. As physicians are trained, you know we we see one, we do one, we teach one you know and so so we need to be changing the culture will receive, but that has to do in part of who is around us. You know in medical school if there are only a handful of women or they're only a handful of non you know of minorities then you know you really don't have a lot to to go on and that's the culture. So trying to improve that culture on the type of patients we see at who were seen but I think that for Parkinson's I have said for many many years for over a decade that Parkinson's is a huge amount. Is like breast cancer There's not one single type of breast cancer. There's many types of breast cancer, and so I think that now that we're focusing on the different minorities and the diversity and the different populations, we may be able to begin to dissect what makes us different what is it? That is causing this population to have Parkinson's versus that, and I think as I said, and I'm going to close with one of my favorite lines that I said before that. Van Gogh said there's no blue with a yellow and orange. You have to understand the uniqueness of each one, the properties of each one in order to be able to understand the whole so that I think that if we begin to dissect those differences, we possibly can find the cure for what else you know the the whole, a better understanding of Parkinson's disease for some means a better understanding of PD for all and you can play a part as Bernadette mentioned the the Michael. J. Fox Foundation is seeking to grow.

"Were sent to their offices, how many social media posts and re tweets and things like that. Have Richard. Olive, it aimed toward affecting public policy. In this case, namely the votes of members of the House and Senate, and so the weight of all, that is really what will help tell us whether we're being successful in our efforts. All right. So I want you get out your scoring Pencil, Ted this is the best test you'll ever get because you get to self evaluate what grade would you give the foundation as it relates to the success measurements you've just outlined. I would give it. I'm not going to be arrogant we can always do better. So I'm GONNA give it an A. minus and I'm doing that because since the policy department was formed with Michael J. Fox Foundation. It's a, it's an organization wide effort we have. Our policy team is only what people see because we've got tremendous backup support for marketing communications, digital strategies pretty much every department. and. So we have a really broad based. Effort with within the foundation to assure that we're making as many touch points as possible. So it's it's really not just that single. Gets emailed out in somebody takes action on we've got a much more holistic broacher foundation. So that's that's why I'm willing to scored. So high because where we have had much more direct impact. Since. Policy Department was formed at Michael J. Fox Foundation then we had been able have previously. When did that happen? that. Was a little over four years ago. Two Thousand Sixteen. Wow. It's been that long. Yeah. Yeah. I mean think about how much you've done I mean that's amazing. What did you catch a little bit on what Ted was talking about as far as the measurement of success? For, me as as an advocate. Building relationships with staff members on Senate and House side, and being able to call them up to where they know your name. They know what you're calling about or mostly which call about unless there's something different that comes up and the idea is that those relationships very far. I. Haven't example where one of my congressmens chief of staff went to work for committee in when I went back the next time the gentleman that replaced him, he says, Paul told me you are going to be coming and he told me that this is what you work on and. Is thanks for for for letting US know or thanks for that thanks to you. We're still continuing the process of helping with Parkinson's so that that was a neat experience for me is Israel. Ted went to law school what drew you into public policy Bay diagnosed with Parkinson's and..
