An Update from The Parkinson Alliance Regarding COVID-19
KINGSTON, N.J. (March 27, 2020) – The Parkinson Alliance is continually monitoring all local, state, and national updates regarding COVID-19 pandemic. The health and safety of our staff and the Parkinson’s community will always be our first concern. We want to reach out to you regarding the steps that we are taking through this unprecedented situation.
- The 2020 Parkinson’s Unity Walk is postponed. We are energized and inspired by the response of our registered participants about the importance of research, and our online tools will remain active.
- We know how vital Parkinson’s disease research is to you and we are working to keep our patient-centered research moving forward. Our newest patient-centered research on Urinary Symptoms and Parkinson’s Disease is now live on our website. Our current survey on Motor Symptoms and Perceived Well-Being in Parkinson’s Disease, will remain open until June 1.
- The website for Team Parkinson at the 2020 Los Angeles Marathon & LA BIG 5K will remain open until April 30.
- As we know more about our postponed spring events as well as our upcoming fall events, we will communicate updates on our website and emails to registered participants.
Most importantly, we are hearing from you about much-needed Parkinson’s resources to help you during this time. We are working on a resources list which we will post on our webpage soon. Please check back on this webpage as we hear from our fellow Parkinson’s disease organizations and partners about their work to help the Parkinson’s community navigate through this challenging situation. If you have any questions that we have not covered, please call (800) 579-8440, and we will do our best to research this information for you.
We want to assure you that we are here for you and determined to do everything we can to help you through this public health crisis. As always, we believe that together, our Parkinson’s community can do so much. Together, we can get through this.
We thank you for your continued support and understanding.
