How To Help

Today, more than four million people around the world suffer from Parkinson’s disease. The disease is chronic and progressive, with symptoms ranging from tremor, stiffness, rigidity, and pain to speech and swallowing, memory loss and depression. Because of the complexity of this disease, patients and their families, as well as physicians and health care professionals, need access to the most effective care and treatment information available. 

That is why the National Parkinson Foundation (NPF) works every day to improve the quality of Parkinson's care through research, education and outreach. We believe by working together, we can improve the quality of care for every person diagnosed with Parkinson's disease today and in the future.
