Parkinson's Action Network Forum to be Cybercast!

Through a generous donation from the Charles and Vivian Sukenik Philanthropic Foundation, the 11th Annual Parkinson's Action Network Forum will be cybercast and available via the Internet. The cybercast will be available through the PAN website.

During the cybercast, online participants will have the ability to watch the same presentations as forum participants in Washington, DC. After the conclusion of the Public Policy Forum on Monday, February 7th, online participants will be urged to contact their Members of Congress through the CapWiz system on the PAN website.

"Weíre extremely grateful for the generosity of Mr. Sukenik," said PAN Executive Director Amy Comstock. "Now the information we learn from the forum can not only be accessed all year, but many more Parkinsonís advocates Ė especially those who wanted to come to Washington, DC, but couldnít Ė will be able to participate in this important community event."

Registration for the forum webcast is easy and free. Access the registration page by going to, or by logging on to the PAN webpage at

For more information on the forum, please contact Benjamin J. Kirby, Communications Director, Parkinson's Action Network.

Established in 1991, the Parkinson's Action Network (PAN) is the unified education and advocacy voice of the Parkinson's community, fighting for a cure. Through education and interaction with the Parkinson's community, scientists, policy and opinion leaders, and the public at large, PAN advocates for increased and accelerated investment of public resources to ease the burden and bring a cure to the more than one million Americans with Parkinson's disease.
