Hi Friends,
As we enter the fourth week of Parkinson’s Awareness Month, we’re highlighting community support—how we at APDA support you and how our community supports us. From our newly diagnosed PRESS program to our Beyond Medication and Powerful Tools for Caregivers series, we aim to support everyone impacted by PD at all stages of the disease.
Our support programs are a vital component to helping navigate a Parkinson’s diagnosis, by providing education, resources, and strong connections that improve physical, mental, and emotional health.
