Our Mission

Proving hope, community, support, and resources to people with Parkinson’s and their loved ones.

Our Vision

To create a world without Parkinson disease. Until then, we are here to help by:

  • Making the public more aware of Parkinson’s and where to get help
  • Educating healthcare professionals about how to recognize and treat Parkinson’s
  • Supporting people with Parkinson’s, their caregivers, and family members
  • Supporting research into the cause, better treatment, and a cure

Our History

Wisconsin Parkinson Association was founded in 1984 as an avenue to provide support for patients who received the diagnosis of Parkinson disease. As a community resource, WPA has grown as the needs of the Parkinson community have grown. As a 501c3 organization, WPA is an independent nonprofit that is not affiliated with a national organization, so the money donated to WPA stays local to support the people who need help.
