Parkinson's Disease

With more than one million Americans suffering from Parkinson's disease, you may be asking yourself what you can do to make a difference. The Parkinson’s Disease Foundation provides guidance on many ways you can get involved, such as organizing fundraisers, attending awareness events or sharing personal stories through works of art. In addition, if you know someone who has this condition, encourage them to take advantage of Atlantic Neuroscience Institute’s Wellness and Support Program, which helps patients and their families find classes and support resources in their area. Atlantic Neuroscience Institute also offers a range of clinical trials for Parkinson’s disease. For more information, call 908-522-5901.
