Parkinson's in the News
Your Tips and Tricks Can Surprise You
What little things do you do to help get yourself through your day and best manage Parkinson's disease? I know many of you have shared your tips and tricks in your support groups and with your friends; but wouldn't it be nice to let everyone in on your secrets? We want to encourage you to share these life-changing tid-bits on our Online Forum. Every time you share a tip and/or a trick you'll be entered into a drawing for a special surprise. The first winner will be announced by the end of February.

Care Partner Mini-Series
From the moment the doctor delivers a diagnosis of Parkinson's disease the role of, and necessity for, a care partner is created. Parkinson's does not only affect the individual diagnosed; those closest to this individual are typically consumed with questions and uncertainty.

The Care Partner Mini-Series is dedicated to providing the tools and resources care partners need to support a person with Parkinson's while maintaining their own health and autonomy.
