Share: Greg Paints the Town … with Posters!

What’s a powerful way to raise awareness of Parkinson’s? Show your support, on a tree, on a bulletin board … or on you! That’s what PDF Research Advocate Greg Hardoby is doing in Rahway, NJ. He is putting PDF’s free awareness posters around town, including in his local library. And he’s topped it off by wearing a PDF hat. How can you do the same? Order free posters from our e-store and see tips on where to post them.

Learn: Partner with Professionals like Maria

Do you know dedicated professionals who care for people with Parkinson’s? Are you one of them?  Ask to speak to hospital staff members, physical therapists or future professionals, for example, nursing students, about life with PD. That’s what Maria De Leon, M.D., did a few months ago at Stephen F. Austin Medical School in Nacogdoches, TX. Dr. De Leon, a PD specialist and a person living with PD, did a “show and tell” to educate students about Parkinson’s disease.
