ParkinsonLink: An Early Start for Awareness Month 2013

Several months ago, PDF asked you how we could better support you during April's Parkinson's Awareness Month 2013. You all had the same answer - start earlier! We are taking your advice, letting you know now about ways to make a difference next April (such as designing the official t-shirt!). If you have other strategies for preparing early, be sure to share them on PDF's blog here.

Order Your Free Parkinson's Awareness Month Supplies

If you didn't grab a free copy of our toolkit last year, order it now. It offers tips for making a difference in your community during April - whether you choose to host an educational event, collaborate with your library, or work with local public officials - and personal stories from those who have successfully raised awareness in their communities. You are also invited to browse our website for other tools, such as template letters to the editor and printable posters.
