PARKINSON'S

services and

awareness

GIVE HELP. GIVE HOPE. GIVE AT...

Parkinson's is an under appreciated health problem in South Central PA. Services for, and awareness of Parkinson's, is very limited, but we hope to help change that. 

OUR VISION

To improve the lives of those with Parkinson's Disorder and their caretakers.

OUR MISSION

To give those with Parkinson's Disorder and their Caretakers hope in obtaining a quality of life through Awareness, Education, Encouragement and Action and taking control and responsibility of their future.

 

Events

GET INVOLVED. DO MORE.
