The Georgia Chapter APDA’s annual fundraisers and events allow us to contribute to on-going medical research, provide services for Georgia residents with Parkinson’s and spread public awareness about the disease. Volunteering, sponsoring and participating in these events gives you the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of people with Parkinson’s, their families and their care partners.
