Parkinson Wellness Recovery | PWR! engages with partners of all shapes and sizes to support therapists, clinics, healthcare systems, and companies that help those diagnosed with Parkinson's disease. PWR!'s partners support research-based exercise programming that helps delay disease progression and decrease symptom severity among those with Parkinson disease. In addition, they also support the continued growth of local PD networks and communities.

We have a variety of opportunities for partners to collaborate with us to help meet these goals. We look forward to working with you to better serve the Parkinson community!
