Parkinson's Awareness Month

Parkinson's Awareness Month #Take6forPD

Take 6 Minutes to Raise Awareness for Parkinson’s disease.


Every 6 minutes, someone will be diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease (PD) in the U.S. This April, for Parkinson’s Awareness Month, we want everyone to #Take6ForPD – take 6 minutes to raise Parkinson’s awareness – so that you and your loved ones can live Better Lives. Together. 

Scroll to find resources and discover how you can join the fight for improved PD education, research, and care.


#Take6forPD to Advance Research

Our incidence study found that a new person receives a Parkinson’s diagnosis every six minutes — that’s 90,000 people diagnosed with PD every year in the U.S. Raise awareness for PD research this month to help us improve treatments and find a cure for Parkinson’s disease.
