7 Ways We Change Lives

The Parkinson Council invested over $400,000 in the Delaware Valley in 2017 for quality of life programs, scientific research, and education. The largest percentage of that funding goes directly to comprehensive care and care-partner programs.

1.  More people, including traditionally-underserved, are getting more therapy, education, and social supports.

2.  Doctors at Penn and Jefferson are doing research that will improve Parkinson’s therapies.

3.  More people who need home visits are getting them.

4.  A clinical fellowship program at Penn and Jefferson is attracting more new doctors who can make a difference in the movement against Parkinson’s.

5.  The Philadelphia Museum of Art is teaching painting, paper making, pottery and sculpture to people with Parkinson’s.

6.  The University of Delaware is helping more patients get access to Movement Disorder Specialists via telehealth.

7.  All over the region, people with Parkinson’s are dancing, practicing yoga, and even boxing, for the first time.
