FIGHTING A DISEASE

The family remains close to one another, and the three ladies support their father in his fight with Parkinson’s disease.

Alan got tested for the disease after reading an article about how one of the early signs of Parkinson's was acting out dreams.

In July 2018, Alan made an appearance on  "CBS This Morning," where he announced that he had been diagnosed with Parkinson's disease three years prior.

The award-winning actor, who is best known for his role as Army Capt. ‘Hawkeye’ Pierce in the TV series "M*A*S*H," shared that since then he’s had a full life. 

"I've acted, I've given talks, I help at the Alda Center for Communicating Science at Stony Brook. I started this new podcast," he said.

The Alan Alda Center for Communicating Science is where the actor teaches acting techniques to scientists and entrepreneurs to help them connect better with their audiences. 

He said that it would have been ironic if he’d kept quiet about the diagnosis when a center for communicating science was named after him.

Alan hoped going public would not just ease the fear others might be feeling, but also put his own mind at ease.
