NPF Statement About Expansion of Eligibility for Veteran Benefits

"NPF applauds the Department of Veterans Affairs for passing a new regulation that expands eligibility for veteran benefits. Now, veterans with traumatic brain injury (TBI), Parkinson’s disease, and certain types of dementia will receive the quality care they deserve. This is a big win for vets living with Parkinson’s and we are grateful to the work of the Parkinson’s Action Network (PAN) for mobilizing the Parkinson’s community on this issue."

— Dr. Michael S. Okun, NPF National Medical Director
