April is Parkinson's Awareness Month

awareness crop
April has been officially recognized as Parkinson's Awareness Month by the U.S. Senate. During this month, we come together not only to reach out to family, friends and the general public to help them better understand what it mean to live with Parkinson's, but to continue to advocate for ongoing support of research aimed at advancing treatment, improving quality of life and finding a cure.

As HAPS celebrates 40 years of raising awareness and serving the community, we ask that you join us in spreading the word about Parkinson's. Get involved in the many activities being held worldwide as we work together to raise global consciousness of Parkinson's. For more information about how you can participate in Parkinson's Awareness Month, please email HAPS at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
