The Georgia Chapter APDA's annual fundraisers and events allow us to contribute to on-going medical research, provide services for Georgia residents with Parkinson's and spread public awareness about the disease. Volunteering, sponsoring and participating in these events gives you the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of people with Parkinson's, their families and their caregivers. We have an exciting line up of events to offer patients and supporters this year. Please read below for a list of events and check our Support Groups/Programs page for other programs.
Educational seminars are held on the third Saturday of each month from 10:30 am - 12:00 Noon.

I started this class in 2004 because my father-in-law had Parkinson's and I saw that exercise helped him improve both his physical and mental capacity. I wanted to help others in this way as well. I hope you'll try it out!
