Our Mission

The American Parkinson Disease Association’s mission is that every day, we provide the support, education, and research that will help everyone impacted by Parkinson’s disease live life to the fullest.

What Does the APDA Do?

The primary function of the American Parkinson Disease Association- Greater St. Louis Chapter is to serve as a central location where people with PD, care partners, medical professionals, students and other interested individuals can call or write to receive the latest information, including FREE printed material, medical and support system referrals, quarterly newsletters, exercise classes, support groups, educational programs and much more. The Chapter also informs individuals about current studies and research projects related to Parkinson disease in which they might wish to participate.

Public awareness and educational programs play a vital role in the Chapter’s activities. The American Parkinson Disease Association- Greater St. Louis Chapter has published the well-received book entitled Coping With Parkinson’s Disease for the benefit of people with PD and care partners alike and A Collection of Helpful Hints for People With Parkinson’s Disease. The American Parkinson Disease Association- Greater St. Louis Chapter has also produced “FIT ‘N FUN,” a therapeutic PD home exercise video and “Caring For A Nursing Home Resident With Parkinson’s Disease.”
