Washington Post: Virtual library provides information about Parkinson’s disease

April is Parkinson’s Disease Awareness Month, a time to think about how much you know about the disease.

You may know about the tremors and stiffness that gradually take over patients’ bodies. You may know about famous people with the disease, including Michael J. Fox.

For what you may not know, there’s the PD Library. If you have Parkinson’s disease or care for someone who does, you need information. And you might just find answers in the PD Library. The free online resource — maintained by the Parkinson’s Foundation — is a gold mine for anyone with an interest in the disease.
