Recursos En Español

Understanding the critical need to provide support to diverse Parkinson’s populations, APDA increased efforts to provide Spanish educational materials. To date, nine APDA brochures and supplements have been written in Spanish, and more continue to be developed. Additionally, APDA offers access to live phone support in Spanish through the 800-223-2732 toll-free helpline. Finally, an “En Español” section has been added to the APDA website to ensure that the Spanish-speaking community can get the important care and support they need.
