Founded in 1978, the Parkinson Association of Alabama, is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization committed to providing support, encouraging action, increasing awareness, and supporting research to lead to new and improved treatments for Parkinson’s disease that will ultimately lead to a cure for the degenerative neurological disease.

Many of the founders of the Association were Parkinson’s patients, family members, and professionals from the medical community. Their understanding of Parkinson’s disease led to the adoption of a mission statement that included caregivers and their families because of the role they play in the daily care and wellness of patients. We achieve our mission through programs of awareness, education, advocacy, and care.

Mission: Improving the quality of life for Parkinson patients,
their caregivers, and families in the State of Alabama.
