ParkinsonLink: What's Your New Year's Resolution?
Happy New Year! PDF’s New Year’s Resolution is to expedite our work in improving the lives and futures of people touched by Parkinson’s. We invite you to be a part of it. As Peggy says in the video at right, “Who wants to find a cure more than the patient?”
Resolution #1: Advance Research
PDF resolves to fund research of the highest caliber. But who says science is just for scientists? You have a say too. If you would like to help advance research and speed new treatments, pair up with the Parkinson’s Advocates in Research (PAIR) program in 2013. PDF now offers a four-part online course that helps everyone advocate alongside our 200 Research Advocates and the scientific community.
Resolution #2: Increase Knowledge
PDF resolves to answer your questions about Parkinson’s disease and provide the tools that allow you to take charge of PD, whether it is through our toll-free HelpLine, (800) 457-6676, our print materials or our online seminars. If you would like to inform yourself, your support group, or your patients, start with next Tuesday’s online/telephone seminar, “Gait, Balance and Falls in Parkinson’s.”
Resolution #3: Empower Community
PDF resolves to empower you, your loved ones and your communities to raise awareness about Parkinson’s disease. If you would like to be a part of the movement during April’s Parkinson’s Awareness Month – whether it is by entering our t-shirt design contest by next Tuesday, January 15, or signing up to be part of the PDF Champions 30 in 30 Challenge – there is a way for everyone to get involved.
We are looking forward to working with you in 2013! Please contact us anytime with questions or comments at (800) 457-6676 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Executive Director, Parkinson's Disease Foundation
