Welcome!

As the grassroots organization for Parkinson's disease, the South Florida Chapter of The American Parkinson Disease Association (APDA) and its Information & Referral Center (I&R Center) are committed to providing services, programs and activities for people with Parkinson’s disease and their Caregivers.

Together, the Chapter and I & R Center "ease the burden" of Parkinson's disease by helping fund and organize numerous local programs and support groups that offer a network of qualified professionals, tangible resources, and a circle of friends who share similar needs. This local network forms the basis of the grassroots campaign to help overcome the unique challenges of living with Parkinson’s disease while concurrently raising funds to “find the cure”.
