Connecting individuals touched by Parkinson's Disease with tools and resources while providing a support network for families and advocates.

Thank Our Legislators

For Supporting the National Plan to End Parkinson's Act

On May 23, 2024, the U.S. Senate unanimously voted in favor of the National Plan to End Parkinson’s Act. This followed the favorable December vote by the U.S. House, sending the bill to President Biden for his approval. My reaction? Shock! After more than 200 years of studying this snowflake condition – the fastest-growing neurological condition on the planet – we are witness to the most historic action ever to occur in the Parkinson’s community. We can now move forward toward funding cohesive research which, coupled with Al (artificial intelligence), has the potential to bring an end to and provide effective treatment for, people with Parkinson’s disease.

"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."
