Every April, the Parkinson’s Foundation engages the global Parkinson’s community to support Parkinson’s Awareness Month. When we raise awareness about Parkinson’s and how the Foundation helps make lives better for people with PD, we can do more together to improve care and advance research toward a cure.

This year, our theme is Start a Conversation, a call to action that urges people to talk about Parkinson’s with their loved ones, friends, neighbors, care team and community. The theme also reflects the speech bubble in the Foundation’s signature P logo.
