Care Partner Training
A recent survey of our community indicated that care partners want and need specific training on managing advanced symptoms and medications, advice on how to manage acute symptoms and episodes, and practical ways to manage not just Parkinson’s care but other health-related concerns. Beginning in September, we’re excited to bring you exactly that.
Healthy Parkinson's Communities
Healthy Parkinson’s Communities (HPC) is an initiative designed and led by the Davis Phinney Foundation to help support community leaders, volunteers, and advocates in making the places we live, work, and play more inclusive and supportive for those living with Parkinson’s. Under the HPC “umbrella,” individual programs work in collaboration to improve community health. These programs include the Community Network, Community Grants, and Ambassador Leadership Program.

Pedaling for Parkinson's
Riding an indoor, stationary bicycle has been shown to reduce Parkinson's motor symptoms by as much as 35%. And it's something almost anyone with Parkinson's can do. Pedaling For Parkinson's connects participants to cycling classes online or in-person at more than 150 facilities across the country.
