It is estimated that approximately 1 million Americans are currently living with a diagnosis of Parkinson's disease. Estimates also show that that there are 60,000 individuals newly diagnosed each year, or one person every nine minutes. Parkinson's disease affects men and women in equal numbers and shows no preference to ethnicity, race or socioeconomic status. While the average age of onset is age 55, 15% of those diagnosed with Parkinson's disease are under the age of 50.
