Upcoming Events Join our Community Find a Local Event The Iowa Chapter’s annual educational events and fundraisers allow us to provide support and services for the Iowa Parkinson’s community and spread public awareness about the disease. Volunteering, sponsoring, and participating in these events allows you to make a difference in the lives of people with Parkinson’s, their families, and their caregivers. The American Parkinson Disease Association (APDA) is closely monitoring the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (also known as COVID-19) situation for the safety of our event attendees, volunteers, and staff. As the disease can pose an increased threat for people with underlying health issues and/or advanced age, which includes many people living with Parkinson’s disease, we are ever mindful of your health and well-being. As such, we have been evaluating our upcoming events, support groups, and exercise classes in conjunction with the recommendations and guidelines put forth by local health officials. In an abundance of caution, we will be suspending the Iowa Chapter support groups, exercise classes, and all events until further notice. We will resume classes/groups as soon as we possibly can and apologize for any inconvenience. We encourage our constituents to contact their group/class leader if they have questions about a specific class or event.
