Thank you to the community for your inquiries to the Parkinson's Disease Foundation (PDF) this week. We are thinking of the families in the Parkinson's community impacted by Hurricane Sandy.
PDF's New York office is also affected by this weather, but we are happy to report that PDF's National HelpLine is open at (800) 457-6676 and firstname.lastname@example.org, and ready to answer your questions about Parkinson's.
PDF's National HelpLine is Open
PDF's National HelpLine is open and functioning at its normal hours, Monday through Friday, from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM ET.
