Support Groups

Find a Parkinson’s Support Group in Georgia Near You

One of the most important goals of the APDA Georgia Chapter is to bring vital support groups to areas near you.  Being a part of a  support group is an important step in maintaining an active and positive lifestyle.  If you are in an area that does not have a support group, contact us and we will help you get the support you need.   The APDA Georgia Chapter wants to be sure you receive the support you need especially during this time when we cannot attend our normal meetings in person.  We invite you to join us for a virtual meeting via ZOOM!  Click the meeting below to join at the scheduled date and time:
