LATEST HAPS NEWS
It is with great excitement that HAPS launches our new look. Through a generous and creative local partnership with Savage Brands, we have carefully and thoughtfully completed a recent rebranding process. Together with Savage Brands’ creative team, we worked to not only create a new image, but to find a way to capture and communicate the reason that HAPS exists. The process, which started in September, began by talking to professionals, leaders and individuals with Parkinson’s. The goal was to connect the heart and soul of HAPS to a narrative that captures the core of what we do to the importance of those we serve.
Houston Area Parkinson Society's 7th Caregiver Conference Caring for Self and Others was held Saturday, November 10, 2018. Caregivers in attendance heard from a group of esteemed physicians and professionals in the field of Parkinson’s disease, with topics developed and presented with a caregiving perspective in mind. While the conference was intended just for caregivers, HAPS knows that the general public may find some of the content important. HAPS captured the morning sessions to share with everyone. You can find the link to the videos from that day here. Again, we thank our speakers for their expertise and our sponsors who made this video possible.
Impact has different definitions to different people and in different contexts. Impact may be thought of as force, influence, meaning, or significance. It can be conceptualized as the long-term effect of an outcome or something we hope to achieve. Whether it is programmatic planning or overarching organizational theory, HAPS considers impact in all the things we do. We use impact as our compass as we develop and implement programs and services; it is how we evaluate our work and where we find our inspiration. To HAPS, impact also means innovative, transformative, and catalytic, as well as, empowering, sustaining and supportive.
