Our Local Impact

Your support of the Parkinson’s Foundation Southwest Chapter makes a big impact on the quality of life for people with Parkinson’s disease (PD) right here in your community, as well as across the country and around the world!

Living well with Parkinson’s disease means having access to the right health care professionals, medications and services. No one with Parkinson’s should go without the care they need because of distance or other obstacles. The Parkinson’s Foundation Global Care Network creates more opportunities for people with PD to access high-quality care. Find a Care Center today.

Parkinson’s Foundation community grants further access to educational, wellness and support programs for people with PD across the nation and right here in your community, with offerings from PD-tailored exercise to mental health support for people with PD to educational workshops for families and care partners. Check out our local offerings now.

Free educational materials prepare and empower people with Parkinson’s. The Aware in Care Hospital Kit gives people with PD tools and information to share with hospital staff during a planned or emergency hospital visit. Request yours today.

Call our Helpline at 1-800-4PD-INFO (473-4636) to find your nearest PD specialist, support group, wellness and exercise classes, and get answers to your PD and caregiving questions. The Helpline answers more than 20,000 calls a year from all over the nation and right here in your community.

The Parkinson's Foundation is your trusted ally for information at every stage of Parkinson's disease (PD). We offer resources including videos, podcasts, webinars and other opportunities to learn about the many aspects of living well with PD. Visit the PD Library to learn more.

PD GENEration: Mapping the Future of Parkinson’s Disease provides comprehensive genetic testing and genetic counseling for people with a Parkinson’s diagnosis at no cost to the participant, helping to fast-track enrollment in clinical trials and leading to breakthroughs in treatment and care for all people with Parkinson’s. Learn more or enroll today.

Progress towards new medicines, better therapies and eventually a cure relies, almost exclusively, on innovative, high-quality research. The Parkinson’s Foundation funds the most promising pathways to discovery and encourages young investigators to stay in PD research. Learn more about our research efforts.
