APDA Long Island I&R Centers
The American Parkinson Disease Association (APDA) was founded in 1961 to “Ease the Burden and Find the Cure” for Parkinson’s Disease. It is a not-for-profit voluntary health agency committed to serving the Parkinson community through a comprehensive program of research, patient education and support. APDA’s goal of promoting a better quality of life for the Parkinson’s community is actualized through its network of Information & Referral Centers, which respond to the needs of people affected by Parkinson’s Disease.
The APDA Long Island Information & Referral Centers are located at the NYIT College of Osteopathic Medicine (Old Westbury) and St. Catherine of Siena Medical Center (Smithtown). With the assistance of volunteers and support from the community, we are able to formulate fundraising events, educational events and social activities.
By working together, we will ultimately achieve our goal to eradicate Parkinson's Disease.
APDA made a special series of education programs available to people with Parkinson's, care partners, families and medical professionals? These programs are archived to offer the option of listening at your convenience. Visit: www.apdaparkinson.org/webinar/
