Defined by doctors as a disease that affects the way you move, Parkinson’s disease, which is linked to decreased dopamine production in the substantia nigra, effects 60,000 Americans annually. At Connecticut Advocates for Parkinson's located in Windsor, they operate as a small non-profit organization aimed at spreading awareness and support for people and families affected by the disease.

In conjunction with several sister charity organizations located throughout the state, these advocates for Parkinson's disease embody their mission statement by working tirelessly to expand resources and support, promote collaboration among those who suffer from onset Parkinson’s, offer wellness and educational opportunities and advocate for the promotion of clinical trial participation nationwide. Whether you choose to participate through monetary donations, by attending one of their many seminars or Parkinson’s support groups or by taking the time to participate in a clinical trial, Connecticut Advocates for Parkinson's welcome help, support and advocation in any form in the hopes of furthering their research for the fight against Parkinson’s disease.
