On World Parkinson's Day, 11 April 2019, Parkinson's UK is launching an attention-grabbing marketing campaign to show the reality of life with Parkinson's. Together we can make more people sit up and listen.
We know from research that people don't think Parkinson's is a serious condition. And people with Parkinson's have told us they don't feel understood. In 2019 and beyond, we're working hard to change this.
On World Parkinson's Day, 11 April 2019, we're launching 'Parkinson's Is' - a campaign to increase understanding of Parkinson's as a serious condition.
