Meet Diane

Diane Patenaude is now a known and recognized author in people living with Parkinson’s disease. She is undeniably an inspiring model. Diane Patenaude has a bachelor’s degree in psychology and a master’s degree in business management (MBA). She has had a career in the health sector. Due to Parkinson’s disease, she left the workforce at the age of 44. With extreme resilience, she got back to life by getting involved as a volunteer for Parkinson Montreal-Laval. Her passion for advancing the cause earned her, in 2005, the Volunteer Strongly Committed Prize, awarded by the Quebec Business Women’s Network. In 2007, she received the David Simmonds Parkinson’s Leadership Award from the Society Parkinson Canada especially for his book “A nous deux, Parkinson!”
