"Parkinson's in Motion is an excellent advocacy group that has made substantial successful efforts to find and help undiagnosed individuals with symptoms of Parkinson's disease as well as to help those diagnosed with Parkinson's disease who are alone and without help and support. Parkinson's in Motion also strongly promotes and encourages exercise, and the importance of movement in general, as a healthy self-help way those with Parkinson's disease can participate in their treatment in a meaningful way."
John T. Slevin, MD, MBA
Parkinson's Disease Professor of Neuroscience • Director, Movement Disorders Program • Vice Chair for Clinical Research, Department of Neurology • University of Kentucky College of Medicine
