April is Parkinson’s Awareness Month. This year, we want to raise awareness about Parkinson’s disease and all of the available resources we have developed to make life better for people with Parkinson’s disease (PD). So we’ve developed the #KnowMorePD quiz. Think you know a lot about Parkinson’s? Take the quiz to see how you do!
Be sure to share this link on social media to help raise awareness of PD.
If you take our quiz during the month of April, you’ll be entered into a weekly drawing for a $25 Amazon gift card. And at the end of the month, we’ll pick one grand prize winner to receive a new Kindle Paperwhite pre-loaded with all 12 of our educational books on PD! Every book is written and designed to make life a little easier for people with PD, their care partners and family members.
Note: Drawings for gift cards will be done April 12, April 19, April 26 and May 3. The drawing for the Kindle will be done on May 3. You are allowed to take the quiz more than once, but your name will only be entered into the contest one time for each drawing. Winners will be notified by email to the email address they use when taking the quiz. Winner of the Amazon Kindle must live within the United States.
