Parkinson Association of the Rockies



Launched Monday, October 7, 2013
Many thanks to Kristie Petrie, Shay Ruggles and the Carbon8 team for their fabulous work in redesigning our website. These creative, thoughtful and talented individuals integrated the unique needs of the Parkinson's community into the website.  While you will find it easier to navigate the new site, you may also notice the site is cleaner and much easier to read. Check out the new site and be sure to go to our facebook page and let us know what you think.
