APRIL IS PARKINSON’S DISEASE AWARENESS MONTH
Parkinson’s Disease (PD) Awareness Month is the perfect time to show your support for the PD community. Let’s come together and raise awareness for this disease as we continue to share hope and strength with everyone living with PD and their loved ones.
Read our tips below on how you can get involved and support the PD community.
- Get connected:
Make this the month you try a new fitness class, get back to your support group, or volunteer for an upcoming event. Check out our Virtual Events Calendar for more information.
- Be a listening ear:
If you know someone with PD, make plans to spend some quality time together, lend an ear or hand, or offer words of support. Whether it’s a simple phone call or an in-person visit, making the time to connect can make a world of difference, for both of you!
- Take time for yourself:
Take time to recommit to yourself and focus on your needs and self-care. Make time for things like rest, doctor appointments, social interaction, and fitness. When you do, you’ll have more energy to educate and inspire others!
When you’re part of the PD community, every month of the year is PD Awareness Month— but this April, let’s go even further to share hope and strength with everyone affected by PD! Check our community page to see what’s going on at an APDA Chapter near you.
