Boards & Committees

Our work would not be possible without the support and dedication of our local Parkinson's Foundation Georgia Advisory Board. Board members provide support and oversight for local programs, including the PD Gladiators Fitness Network, educational seminars, special events and our annual Moving Day Atlanta Walk for Parkinson's.

The Parkinson's Foundation is currently seeking new Board members who are passionate about serving the Parkinson's community. The Advisory Board needs a variety of skills, with a strong emphasis on those with experience in community outreach, media/marketing, clinical affairs, volunteer coordination, program development and fundraising (i.e., grant writing, special events, corporate sponsorships, major donors).
