Participate in and Join a Study

Becoming involved is critical to research. Your investment of time can mean a world of difference.

Studies need involvement not only from those dealing with Parkinson’s but also from those who are healthy. These 'normal controls' - those who are healthy and have not been diagnosed with Parkinson’s - are extremely important to the success of any study and trial.

I’m thinking about it...

You can make a direct contribution to advancing what researchers and clinicians know about a Parkinson’s - or another disease or disorder under study.

Support Groups

Support groups are lead through the center to provide assistance for Parkinson’s patients, caregivers and Essential tremor patients in Center City and Elkins Park. There are other smaller support groups for specific issues such as patients with DBS and early onset Parksinson’s Disease. Efforts are being put towards expanding programs into Chinatown and West Philadelphia. For a complete list of support groups from the Parkinson’s Coucil please refer to http://www.theparkinsoncouncil.org/support-groups.html.
