A possible breakthrough in PD treatment, Boxing and more

A few posts from the Parkinson’s Action Network.

Did you know that there is a Congressional Caucus on Parkinson’s?  The Congressional Caucus on Parkinson’s Disease was created to educate Members of Congress about Parkinson’s disease issues and to inform them and their staff about the latest developments in Parkinson’s research and care.  Led by its Co-Chairs, more than 150 members of the Congressional Caucus on Parkinson’s Disease work together to support the needs of our community in the hopes of finding better treatments and a cure for Parkinson’s.  They are our champions, and we are grateful for their commitment and dedication.    To find out if your Congressperson is on the list, go to http://parkinsonsaction.org/our-work/congressional-caucus/caucus-list-2/

Contact your Members of Congress today and ask them to show support for the Parkinson’s community by joining the Congressional Caucus on Parkinson’s Disease – or just take a minute to say thank you! Take action!
