Your sponsorship dollars will provide you with increased corporate or brand visibility while making a direct and meaningful impact on the lives of those affected by Parkinson's Disease here in Georgia.
An estimated 1.5 million Americans have Parkinson's disease. Parkinson's is a slowly progressive brain disorder resulting in the loss of dopamine production. Dopamine is the neuro-transmitter responsible for aiding in body movements. Symptoms include slowness of movement, tremor, muscle stiffness, and postural instability. To date there is no cure.
The American Parkinson Disease Association (APDA) was founded in 1961 to facilitate patient and family support, medical research, and education. APDA Georgia carries out that mission through an Information & Referral Center, support of respite programs for Caregivers and affiliated support groups which provide education, counseling, assistance and referrals for the Parkinson's Disease Community.
