Together, we made lives better in 2017. Through your support, we provided better care, research and treatments for the 10 million people world-wide living with Parkinson’s disease (PD).
We could not have achieved these strides for the Parkinson’s community without YOU:
A good night’s sleep is critical to our health and well-being, especially for people with Parkinson’s disease (PD). The brain changes that are part of PD can cause sleep difficulties. Join us to learn about common sleep problems for people with PD and how to manage this side of the disease.

Currently, there are two surgical treatments available for people living with Parkinson’s Disease — deep brain stimulation (DBS) or surgery performed to insert a tube in the small intestine, which delivers a gel formulation of carbidopa/levodopa (Duopa™). Join us to learn about both!
