PWR! has partnered with an amazing group of advocates/organizations to form an initiative to make sustainable PD-specific community-based exercise programs available to all PwPs for life.  Whether you are a PWP, care partner, healthcare professional, friend/family member, or advocate, we need many voices to mobilize the Parkinson’s community to adopt new standards of healthcare.  We hope that you will lend your voice to PATH and share this link with others in the PD community.
