To Ease the Burden
To find a Cure


Our Mission

The Arkansas Chapter of the American Parkinson Disease Association is here to EDUCATE and ASSIST those in the state with Parkinson Disease. The APDA’s motto of “To ease the burden and find a cure” is evident in the Arkansas Chapter’s activities.

To that end, we sponsor and support 17 Support Groups throughout the state, and conduct an all day seminar each year, as well as in-service training for professionals. This web site is to help those who are newly diagnosed find a local support group and more information on PD and the resources available to them. For those who already belong to a support group, hopefully this web site will help you stay better connected, know what’s going on in our state, and learn new things about Parkinson Disease.
