APDA PRESS (Parkinson’s Roadmap for Education and Support Services)
Next Session Fall of 2024

This 8-week program provides an opportunity for people with Parkinson’s and one partner or other family member to meet with others facing a similar experience and share coping strategies regarding day-to-day issues related to living with Parkinson’s. PRESS is a place to share feelings in a safe, caring environment and gather to share information and resources. This program is facilitated by a licensed social worker, and includes guest speakers.

The group is open to any adult who has been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease within the last 5 years and one partner or other family member. There is no cost for this program.

APDA 3rd Annual Magic of Hope Gala & Auction

Please join Co-Chairs Allison Saker Goldberg & Amy Belkin Mofenson for the 3rd Annual Magic of Hope Gala & Auction supporting the American Parkinson Disease Association of Massachusetts.

All proceeds from the event will support the APDA and its mission to find a cure and to help improve the lives of those living with Parkinson’s. With Parkinson’s disease affecting more than 10 million people worldwide, APDA’s services and research are more vital than ever.

We hope you will join us for a night to remember at our biggest fundraiser of the year and help raise funds to provide vital research, support, education, and resources to those affected by Parkinson’s across Massachusetts and beyond.
