We are proud to premiere this PSA from U.S. Senator Cory Booker (NJ) about Parkinson’s disease. Senator Booker’s father had Parkinson’s, and he is committed to doing whatever it takes to beat Parkinson’s. Watch the PSA and let us know what you think!

Introduction

About NPF
The mission of the National Parkinson Foundation is to improve the quality of care for people with Parkinson’s disease through research, education and outreach. Please consider supporting us by making a donation at www.parkinson.org/donate.

Overview
For over half a century, we have been focused on meeting the needs in the care and treatment of people with Parkinson’s disease. Since 1982, we have funded more than $189 million in care, research and support services. We believe that every person diagnosed with Parkinson’s deserves the best care and treatment no matter who they are or where they live. We have created a unique global network to meet the needs of the Parkinson’s community that includes:

  • 41 Centers of Excellence at top medical centers around the globe.
  • Chapters and support groups around the country serving 100,000 people with Parkinson’s and their families.

We help get people affected by Parkinson's the help they need - get free publications, videos and more at http://www.parkinson.org/.

Looking for a local NPF Chapter, NPF Center of Excellence or support group?: www.parkinson.org/search.
