April 10, 2012

April is Parkinson’s Awareness Month. With 50,000 – 60,000 new cases of Parkinson’s reported each year in the United States alone, this is a brain disease that will not be ignored. Although there is currently no cure for Parkinson’s, there are some suggested ways to help control the symptoms, as you will read about in our first article. April is also National Volunteer Month. Perhaps consider offering some volunteer time to your local Parkinson’s (apdaparkinson.org) or Alzheimer’s Association (alz.org) chapter.
