Support groups and exercise programs by region

Find what you need by region

In response to the evolving coronavirus disease (COVID-19) and with an abundance of caution, the American Parkinson Disease Association has decided to postpone all in-person events and meetings until further notice.  We want you to know that this decision was not made lightly. Our first priority is the health and safety of our attendees, volunteers and staff.

Contact the individual support group or exercise class to see if there are virtual meeting options in place.
