How does your gift make a difference?
Donors' gifts have helped us to:
provide education and support to more than 1,000 people affected by Parkinson's through more than 60 volunteer-led, community-based support groups throughout Wisconsin;
form a partnership with Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science to discover the cause of dyskinesias in people with PD;
provide critical Parkinson disease information to people in communities via our half-day "Understanding PD" seminars;
determine the special needs facing people with young-onset PD and develop services to address those needs;
provide life-saving services to young-onset patients who lacked insurance, income, or caregiver support;
implement a southeastern Wisconsin awareness campaign that reached thousands of people with messages about the different faces of Parkinson's and how to recognize symptoms;
determine the Parkinson prevalence rates in Wisconsin counties so that we can better target our services and programs;
educate more than 200 people about Parkinson disease at the annual Kenton Kilmer Parkinson Disease Symposium;
train professionals in a state-of-the-art PD exercise model so that they can start group exercise programs in their own communities around the state;
conduct a study with more than 50 married couples who both have PD to try to determine a possible cause of the disorder;
screen people for PD in their communities; and
provide a high-quality magazine to more than 5,000 homes and clinics with the latest information about the care and treatment of PD.
Whatever you can give will make a significant difference to someone living with Parkinson disease.
