About The Parkinson Council
We’re The Parkinson Council and We’re Here for You.
At Penn, scientists are doing groundbreaking research. At the Y, people with Parkinson’s Disease are hip-hop dancing. This is why we get up in the morning.
The Parkinson Council is dedicated to helping people in our region who are affected by Parkinson’s—whether they are individuals living with Parkinson’s Disease, people who have been newly diagnosed, or caregivers.
Yes, we’re local and proud of it. We fund research, education and quality of life programs at world-renowned institutions here in Greater Philadelphia. This laser focus on our region helps impact many lives. And it makes us a little different from bigger, equally worthy national organizations. Local funding + local investment = local impact. We welcome any donations big or small to help support our efforts.
If you live with Parkinson’s or care for someone who does, we can help you find community, inspiration, and hope. Right here, where you live.
