Resources for Veterans with Parkinson’s
More than 110,000 veterans with Parkinson’s disease (PD) receive care through the U.S. Department of Affairs (VA). Many U.S. military veterans with Parkinson’s have access to specialized medical care and financial assistance through the VA. We will explore the resources and support services that Veterans have access to through the VA and the Parkinson’s Foundation.
