This Parkinson's Awareness Month, we would like to show you how we are making a difference in the Parkinson's community. When you support NPF, you fund the very best Parkinson's research in the world. You fund expert care for a better today and research for a better tomorrow.
As part of National Volunteer Week, we invite you to volunteer with our national headquarters or a local chapter! Whether you serve on a planning committee, organize a community outreach event or support our mission to beat Parkinson's in another way, your valuable skills and desire to get involved will make a difference for people living with Parkinson's disease.

The National Parkinson Foundation, under the direction of its Clinical and Scientific Advisory Board, has announced the 2015 Clinical Research and Intervention Investigator Awards for Parkinson's Disease. NPF has published a request for applications to fund cutting-edge research. Grant funding is available in three high-impact focus areas of inflammation, depression and sex differences.
Continuing our commitment to invest in the future of Parkinson's research, NPF has announced two new awards to support promising young Parkinson's disease researchers: a fellowship for training neurologists in the field of movement disorders and a research grant to help young faculty to accelerate their scientific careers.
