ADPA

The American Parkinson Disease Association (APDA) is the country’s largest grass roots organization serving the Parkinson’s community. It is a 501 © (3) not-for-profit organization and receives no governmental or public funding. Each year APDA contributes more than $2.5 million for research and another $2 million for direct patient and caregiver support through the generous support of individual and corporate donations.  You can be a partner in easing the burden and finding a cure in a variety of ways while honoring a loved one or even helping to secure your own financial future.

APT

PDtrials Parkinson’s disease (PD) has been called the most curable neurological disorder. In the last decade, there has been an explosion of new research ideas for Parkinson's and other diseases of the brain. These discoveries need to be tested in clinical trials before they become available to the public. Yet, it is estimated that less than one percent of the one million people with PD currently participate in trials. This is far short of the number that is needed, and this lack of participation in clinical research potentially translates in the delay of these important new treatment and therapies.
