Director's Notes

Ciara Clancy, CEO of Beats Medical was recently in St. Louis to discuss her application that is dedicated to conquering the mobility symptoms associated with Parkinson’s disease.  Ciara, myself and Vijay Chauhan of  GlobalSTL met with patients, and Debbie Guyer, the Executive Director and Matt Schumacher, Board President of the St. Louis American Parkinson’s Disease Association to hear about this exciting product. 

Ciara explained and demonstrated how the product can enable people with Parkinson’s to have the tools they need to take control of  their condition.  Ciara is working with Dr. Gammon Earhart of Washington University on a clinical trial of the product.  Beats Medical is based in Dublin and is considering establishing their U.S. headquarters in St. Louis. 

Kindest Regards,
