American Parkinson Disease Association/Washington Chapter
Last updated on August 5, 2015


We are a dedicated group of volunteers whose focus is to support the needs of Parkinson's patients in Washington State. We do this through working cohesively with and supporting our regional APDA Information and Referral Center; through the raising of funds for research into the cause and cure of Parkinson's disease; and through our involvement in area support groups, and educational symposia.

We are part of the larger network of American Parkinson Disease Association. The APDA 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 was founded in 1961 to "Ease the Burden and Find the Cure." It is the nation's largest grassroots organization for supporting Parkinson patients.

The Washington Chapter works in the Northwest Region for the American Parkinson Disease Association, which was founded in 1963.
