Mission: Empowering the Wisconsin Parkinson’s community through support, education, and mind/body programs.
Welcome! Parkinson disease is a neurodegenerative disease 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 mission of the Wisconsin Chapter of the APDA is to “Ease the Burden, to Find the Cure.” We do this by providing support and empowering people with Parkinson’s disease, their families, and caregivers through education, fundraising for research, sponsoring support groups, and networking with resource and referral agencies involved in the care of people with Parkinson’s disease throughout Wisconsin.
