Marty Huff Interviews Jane Rice Williams & Ray Dorsey on WYGE, 92.3 FM


Marty Huff, on-air personality for radio station WYGE, 92.3 FM in London, Kentucky welcomed Jane Rice Williams and Ray Dorsey to his show to discuss Parkinson’s Disease and the ongoing efforts to end the disease.

Jane Rice Williams served as an Administrative Law Judge with the Kentucky Department of Workers’ Claims from July of 2012 until July of 2020.  She received her Bachelor of Arts from the University of Kentucky and Juris Doctorate from Salmon P. Chase College of Law.  She was admitted to the practice of law in the Commonwealth of Kentucky in October of 1995 and is a member of the Kentucky and Laurel County Bar Associations. She was inducted as a Fellow of the College of Workers’ Compensation Lawyers in March of 2017. She served on the Board of Directors of the National Association of Workers’ Compensation Judiciary and was inducted into the NAWCJ Hall of Fame in August 2022.

Diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease in 2016, Jane organized in 2018 what is now PIM. She works determinedly to reach and motivate PWP, particularly focusing on the isolated and underserved areas in eastern and southern Kentucky where Parkinson’s often goes undiagnosed, and patients are rarely directed toward self-help.  Believing happiness and optimism are choices in life – not situational – Jane strives to provide the tools for physical, mental and social well being.

Jane is deeply and humbly grateful to the friends and individually skilled associates who have readily provided expertise and hard work – Thanks for always saying “Yes” building this organization that transforms lives of those whose lives are touched by PD.
