We all wish for a cure for Parkinson’s, and there are a number of organizations that are doing great work in raising money towards research. So far, however, we don’t know what causes Parkinson’s, nor do we have a cure. Until that time, the Parkinson Association of the Carolinas (PAC) exists as a channel to North and South Carolina at the grassroots level. We provide resources to those affected in several ways:
- Assisting in the formation and encouragement of over eighty (80) support groups throughout North and South Carolina.
- Creating and distributing a monthly e-newsletter that covers topics such as disease education, current research, community resources, support group meetings and Parkinson’s community events.
- Maintaining and updating our website, with current information from the national Parkinson’s organizations as well as local events and additional resources.
- Offering a toll-free resource line, for individuals seeking information about Parkinson’s disease and details about resources in their area.
- Presenting educational symposia with for patients, their families/friends and the healthcare community throughout the Carolinas.
Your donations will help us grow and continue to provide support and resources throughout 2018!
