Information to empower YOU!
People impacted by Parkinson’s and other movement disorders experience a loss of control every day. Whether you are a care partner trying to establish a new medication schedule and integrate it into your life, a person with the disease who is now challenged to do what came so easily five years ago, or an adult child trying to figure out how to be of assistance and support – this disease makes all of us feel powerless at one time or another.
At PMDAlliance, we believe that information is POWER . . . and let’s face it: medications for Parkinson’s aren’t something you’re going to find on a drugstore shelf. We also know that as interesting as anecdotes about someone’s personal experience with a treatment may be, effectively treating the symptoms of PD often requires a personalized combination of medications that can’t be found in a internet search.
That’s why we share information about treatment and medication options and create opportunities for you to hear from professionals directly. Our hope is that you’ll ask questions, absorb information to discuss with your physician, and be better informed and empowered to weigh your options and make wise choices.
At PMDAlliance, we know that you are more than your disease. We respect and value you in your capabilities, your choices, your hopes, and your power, and we’ve learned that complete and accurate information supports you in all those aspects of your life.
