Review for American Parkinson Disease Association, Staten Island, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I was diagnosed with Parkinson Disease on September 11, 2008. I immediately was notified of APDA by my Neurologist, and I started right away to benefit by the organization. APDA provided me with more than enough literature educating me about the disease, and giving me suggestions on how I could cope with the disease. APDA has several local support groups in the St. Louis area, and I have attended a weekly exercise program offered free of charge by APDA. The support group also meets once a month, and when possible a medically trained professional will speak to us about Parkinson Disease and what we can do to live with the disease. Luncheons and banquets are provided free of charge at various times during the year, and once or twice during the year a PD specialist will speak to us at a forum.
