Contact Your Member of Congress Today about Parkinson's Issues

The Parkinson's Disease Foundation (PDF) has received an important update from the Parkinson's Action Network (PAN) asking all members of the Parkinson’s community to advocate now for Parkinson’s issues with their Members of Congress.

This week, as part of PAN’s Research and Public Policy Forum, Parkinson’s advocates have gathered in Washington, DC for a “Parkinson’s Community Call on Congress.” In a single day, Parkinson’s advocates will have approximately 250 in person meetings with Members of Congress and their staff members to advocate for important issues affecting the community. 

We want other advocates across the country to add their voice to these meetings by contacting their Senators and Representatives – supporting the legislative requests that will be made during the in-person meetings.

PDF supporters are encouraged to contact their Senators and Representatives to support these legislative requests of the Members of Congress:

1) Join the Congressional Caucus on Parkinson’s Disease; 2) Co-sponsor the National Neurological Diseases Surveillance System Act; and 3) Support both biomedical research and therapy development at the National Institutes of Health. 
It is important that Members of Congress hear from the Parkinson’s community in their districts.  Please click “Take Action” to contact your Member of Congress today.
