Understanding Parkinson’s Disease

(NAPS)—60,000 people are newly diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease (PD) each year. Nearly fifty percent of those newly diagnosed with Parkinson’s and their care partners leave the doctor’s office following a diagnosis without educational resources or information on what the future holds.


The Parkinson’s Foundation aims to connect with those newly diagnosed with PD earlier and more frequently to provide ongoing support throughout their entire journey with the disease. Newly Diagnosed: Building a Better Life with Parkinson’s Disease, is a new program designed to arm people who are newly diagnosed with the knowledge, tools and resources they need to navigate life with the disease.


The Parkinson’s Foundation also offers educational programs that focus on care and research; digital resources; topical podcasts; and an online community to connect with others living with the disease and care partners and be part of a network of support.


If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease, you are not alone. Call the toll-free Parkinson’s Foundation Helpline at 1-800-4PD-INFO (473-4636) or email Helpline@Parkinson.org. Order your free Newly Diagnosed kit today at ­Parkinson.org/NewlyDiagnosed.
