PAN Alert: Today is the Day: Join the Parkinson's Day of Action

The Parkinson's Disease Foundation (PDF) has received another important update from the Parkinson's Action Network (PAN) about advocating for research funding.

From PAN:

Dear Parkinson's Advocate,

Today is the day! As over one hundred of your fellow advocates from across the country descend upon Capitol Hill today to talk about the importance of supporting Parkinson's research and services, now is your time to add to the strength of the community's voice and call your Members of Congress between 9:00 AM and 5:00 PM ET.

How to Call

We have made it easy to participate by providing you with talking points and phone numbers for your Members of Congress. All you have to do is visit PAN's website and enter your zipcode.

Spread the Word!

After you've made your call, please forward this email to encourage your friends, family, support groups, and community to participate in the Parkinson's Day of Action - or send them a copy of your state-specific Day of Action flyer.

You can also help spread the word via social media:

  • To invite your friends and family on Facebook, click here!
  • Want to tweet your Twitter followers? Use the hashtag #pddayofaction and use these sample tweets.

Thank you for being a part of PAN – and we hope to have your voice join ours on the Hill today!

PAN is the voice of the Parkinson's community in Washington, DC. In fiscal year 2014, PDF is supporting PAN with a grant of $200,000.
