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
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.
I wanted to let you know how much I appreciate WPA offering a Parkinson's Dance Class in Fond du Lac. I really enjoy the opportunity to participate and reconnect with people with PD who I knew from our support group. I'm so grateful for the instructor, Kate, and her energy and time!J.T.
Thank you for the program yesterday in Oconomowoc. I learned more from Dr. Swanson’s presentation than I think I have learned at any other presentation; however, all three speakers were beneficial.
It is so great you are having these in outlying areas, making them so much more accessible for those who can’t get into Milwaukee.P.B.
I wanted to thank you for The Network magazine. I think it is attractive, interesting, nicely put together and a clear addition to the improved communication. I was so pleased that our support group was included. You are making a difference for all of us who are anxious to benefit our support group members. We are proud of you and all of the leadership that contributes to the growth of the Wisconsin Parkinson Association.R.W.
You helped me when my husband was very ill and I didn't know where to turn. Now I'm happy to return the favor.B.A.
For a significant period of time we were privileged to attend a support group in Wisconsin. It was an encouraging experience. We came away with realistic information, genuine understanding of our situation, friends and always a dwelling on the positive. To those of you who serve to make this origination possible, thank you.C.J.
