Nebraska Parkinson's Registry
In Nebraska in 1996 through a grass roots effort by PD interest groups and researchers legislation was passed that mandated the creation of the Parkinson’s Disease Registry. The purpose of the registry is to provide a central bank for researchers to study the incidence and possible risk factors concerning Parkinson’s, plan for patient health care requirements and the education needs of health care providers. To help create the data for the registry, Physicians and Pharmacies are required to submit certain patient information. Please talk with your doctor or pharmacist and let them know about the Nebraska Parkinson’s Registry and benefits when data is reported.
