Do you know how they confirm whether you've got Parkinson's for the study?

Yes, I know there's they won't and can't diagnose!! Just wondering how they confirm that one has actually been diagnosed with PD, since they want to screen non-PWPs out of this particular research....

P.S. This forum is not moderated. NPF values the free flow of information and the collective power of all persons and organizations working to improve the well being of those living with PD. I was a casual visitor today as I wanted to be sure the 23andME announcement displayed properly, when I happened on your post.
