Welcome to the Science News Page. Here you'll find articles relating to the latest scientific discoveries or breakthroughs relating to Parkinson's.
We strongly encourage people with Parkinson’s, family members, friends, caregivers and other interested individuals to attend one of the many support groups offered. Support groups provide an opportunity for people to meet regularly for mutual support and to exchange coping skills with one another in matters relating to Parkinson’s disease.

Starting a fundraiser allows you to take the lead in planning your own event. It is a great way to raise funds and awareness for Parkinson’s disease in your local community.
Successful Parkinson’s Champions events take place around the country – from golf tournaments, planning a community walk, to donating your birthday and everything in between – you can host a fundraiser that works for you.
The possibilities are endless and we are here to help you every step of the way!
