There is Still Time to Make a Difference

We are now halfway through Parkinson’s Awareness Month and more than halfway to our goal of raising $100,000 through the Irving G. Brilliant Research Challenge (all of which will be matched by Mr. Brilliant)! In this week’s update, browse unique ideas for raising awareness and find out if one of our “PAIR Up for Parkinson’s Research” forums is coming to your community.

 

Spread the Word

How can you show the world the impact of Parkinson’s? Get ideas from Becky Pruitt Jarnagin of Elizabethton, TN, who decided to tie PDF ribbons on the trees around her community and from Linda Giorgilli, of Tampa, FL, who chose to write a letter to the editor of her local newspaper.

Educate Yourself and Others

How can you ensure that you and others have access to the latest information? Join one of PDF’s 25 “PAIR Up for Parkinson’s Research” educational forums taking place nationwide during April. Learn about local Parkinson’s research studies, how you and your loved ones can get involved and help to thank those who have participated in studies for their contributions.  All forums are organized by the 156 Research Advocates who are part of PDF’s Parkinson’s Advocates in Research (PAIR) program in collaboration with local organizations.
