Alda wanted to share his diagnosis to encourage others
Alda recently started a new podcast called Clear + Vivid with Alan Alda. As he was recording the podcast, he noticed in a video of himself where his thumb was twitching. Alda did not want speculation to take his story and make it a sad point or something for tabloid fodder. “I am not in a bad place,” he said.
He tweeted out to his fans: “I decided to let people know I have Parkinson’s to encourage others to take action. If you get a diagnosis, keep moving!”
