  • APDA: Smart Patients: A Parkinson’s Disease Online Community

    American Parkinson’s Disease Association (APDA)

    Smart Patients: A Parkinson’s Disease Online Community

    Helping people with Parkinson’s and their care partners connect with each other is the reason we’ve partnered with Smart Patients to create a new online discussion forum for people with Parkinson’s disease and their loved ones. Members in this online forum share help, advice, and information about treatments, symptoms, and side effects. Smart Patients provides the opportunity to further a dialogue that nurtures the PD community, provides socialization, education, and critical access to information – and allows APDA support and connect more people across the country.

  • DPF: Care Partner Monthly Meetup

    Davis-Phinney Foundation (DPF)

    The Care Partner Monthly Meetup is hosted by Connie Carpenter Phinney on the first Tuesday of every month, 12 pm Mountain Daylight Time.

  • MJFF: Parkinson’s Buddy Network

    Michael J. Fox Foundation (MJFF)

    The Parkinson’s Buddy Network is an online community of people impacted by Parkinson’s — those living with the disease, their loved ones and caregivers. The platform was designed to help you make meaningful connections, engage in important dialogue, find useful resources and build long-lasting relationships.
