APDA Nebraska Chapter Support Groups and Resources

  • The Parkinson's Action Network (PAN) NEEDS YOUR HELP!

    The Parkinson's Action Network (PAN) is the unified voice of the Parkinson's community advocating for better treatments and a cure.  In partnership with other Parkinson's organizations and our powerful grassroots network, we educate the public and government leaders on better policies for research and an improved quality of life for people living with Parkinson's.

    PAN invites you to join that powerful grassroots network by raising your voice to be heard by our congressional delegation in Washington, DC.  All you need to do is click on the link to the PAN homepage below and go to either "Take Action" in the right hand corner or to the "Take Action -- Sign Up" section on the middle right side.  The work is all done for you, all you need to do is type in your zip code and fill in your name and address and letters will be sent to the appropriate Senators and Representatives.  Join us today! for more information please click here.

 

 

  • The APDA National Young Onset Center focuses on developing education and support services that address the unique needs of young people with Parkinson's Disease, their family members and friends as well as their healthcare team. For more information Click Here.

 

  • Nebraska Parkinson's 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, please talk with your doctor or pharmacist and let them know about the Nebraska Parkinson’s Registry and benefits when data is reported. For more information please Click Here.
