Community Discusses Parkinson’s Awareness Month

"I received a call from a woman who read my Letter to the Editor in our local paper and told me how it touched her. Even if we all decide to do something small, it is that one extra person who learns about Parkinson's that then spreads the word to someone else, and so on!"
Linda Giorgilli, via Facebook

"People with Parkinson's can and should be part of the solution."
Carol Schulte, via PAIR Up for Parkinson’s Educational Forum in NYC

"It is so important that WE use this month to celebrate, educate, and share with our families, friends, elected officials, and the general public about the need for research, better treatments, and a cure."
