The American Parkinson Disease Association (APDA)  aims to assist the more than one million Americans with Parkinson's disease and their families through a nationwide network of Chapters, Information & Referral Centers (I&R) and support groups.  APDA also pursues its efforts to fund research through our Centers for Advanced Research and by awarding grants to fund the most promising research toward discovering the cause(s) and finding the cure for Parkinson's disease.  

APDA counts on your participation in our awareness and fundraising events across the country.  Show your support by attending an event in your area or simply by making a donation now.
