The ParkinsonVoice printed newsletter is a valuable publication, yet with the constant increases in printing and postage costs, this newsletter has become one of the Association's most expensive costs. You can help us reduce this cost and allocate more funding to expand programs and services by Going Green! The ParkinsonVoice will be available online, on your iPad, iPhone and Android.
