Con este sentimiento en mente, Dra. Claudia Martinez, MD, empieza en 2007 a construir un programa que no solo ayuda a los hispanos que viven con el Parkinson a comunicarse y celebrar, sino también a fortalecer sus voces y empoderarlos. Hoy, con cerca de 40 miembros activos, 12 eventos cada año y una conexión como una familia, el coro - Voces Unidas - hace todo de esto y mucho más.

In 2007, Dr. Claudia Martinez, MD, set out to build a program that would not only help Hispanics living with Parkinson's communicate and celebrate but strengthen their voices and empower them as well. Today, with almost 40 active members, 12 events each year, and a bond that has made them a family, the choir—Voces Unidas—does all that and more.
Lianna Marie, who served as her mother’s caregiver and advocate for more than 20 years through the many stages of Parkinson’s, is the founder of AllAboutParkinsons.com, an online community that has connected and helped thousands of people with Parkinson's, their families, and their caregivers. Lianna recently sat down with us to talk about her experiences as a care partner, building a care team, finding in-home and long-term care for her mother, and more.
