American Parkinson Disease Association




The American Parkinson Disease Association was founded in 1961 with the dual purpose to Ease the Burden and to Find the Cure for Parkinson’s disease. As the country’s largest Parkinson’s grassroots organization, the American Parkinson Disease Association aims to Ease the Burden for the more than one million Americans with Parkinson’s disease and their families. The Association pursues its efforts to Find the Cure by funding Centers for Advanced Research and awarding grants to fund the most promising research toward discovering the cause(s) and finding the cure for Parkinson’s disease.
