Having just returned from the Parkinson’s Forum in Washington, DC, I wanted to give an update on legislation on the Federal level that has the ability to impact each of our lives. Over 150 people attended the Forum. We spent the second day of the conference on Capital Hill visiting with our individual state Senators and Representatives. I had meetings with staff members from Senator Tom Udall, Senator Martin Heinrich, and Congressman Ben Ray Lujan’s offices.
Here are the key issues that we need them to support:
