Date:6/5/2009

MIAMI, June 5 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The National Parkinson Foundation (NPF) announced today that Peter N. Schmidt, Ph.D. has been named Chief Information Officer and Director of Programs effective June 1. Dr. Schmidt was most recently Director at Cronus Partners, an investment banking firm in Norwalk, CT.

"Dr. Schmidt will play a key role in helping us fulfill our mission of improving care. He will focus on creating a data-driven approach that is at the forefront of health information technology, including the development of a web-based clinical database, related internet resources and strategic alliances," said Joyce Oberdorf, President and Chief Executive Officer.

Peter Schmidt brings a depth of experience in information technology management and execution to NPF. Prior to his role as Director at Cronus Partners, Dr. Schmidt was president of Doctor Global, Ltd., a company offering software for chronic disease management. Among his accomplishments at Doctor Global, Ltd. was helping victims of hurricane Katrina through their decentralized care.

Dr. Schmidt was awarded an M.S. and Ph.D. from Cornell University, Sibley School of Mechanical Engineering where he studied gait and balance and total joint replacement. He graduated from Harvard University with a B.S. in mechanical engineering. After a fellowship at the Hospital for Special Surgery, Dr. Schmidt temporarily left health care for the growing internet boom, taking several technology management positions at early internet companies. This culminated in a stint as the Chief Operating Officer of a non-profit joint venture of Oxford, Stanford, and Yale Universities offering on-line education.

Dr. Schmidt is an active member of several trade groups and is widely published in both scientific and trade journals on issues around medicine, health information technology and finance.
