The American Parkinson Disease Association (APDA) was founded in 1961 with the dual purpose to Ease the Burden - Find the Cure for Parkinson's disease.  APDA aims to Ease the Burden for the more than one million Americans with Parkinson's disease and their families through a nationwide network of Chapters, Information & Referral Centers (I&R) and support groups.  APDA pursues its efforts to Find the Cure by funding Centers for Advanced Research and awarding grants to fund the most promising research toward discovering the cause(s) and finding the cure for Parkinson's disease.  

APDA counts on your participation in our awareness and fundraising events across the country.  Show your support by attending an event in your area or simply by making a donation now.
