Policy Advocacy 101 & the National Plan to End Parkinson’s Act
The National Plan to End Parkinson’s Act is legislation that will, for the first time, unite the federal government in a mission to prevent and cure Parkinson’s disease. During the presentation, Mason will explain the bill’s purpose and how you can help it get passed. No one understands Parkinson’s disease like you do, and your personal story goes a long way in helping Congress prioritize preventing and curing this disease and ensuring quality care for people living with Parkinson’s. We hope you can join us to ask your questions and learn more about how you can help get it passed!
