Parkinson's Awareness Month: Know What I Know

It's April and that means it's Parkinson's Disease Awareness Month! This community knows that Parkinson's disease is much more complex than what appears on the surface -- the symptoms go deeper and are unnoticeable to the outside viewer. How can we make others aware of non-motor symptoms that one with Parkinson's may experience? By helping others "know what I know", we can convey what Parkinson's is really like.

All throughout the month, we want to start conversations about the things you want others to know about Parkinson's disease. Also, as a community we can offer each other support, camaraderie, and hopefully, a sense of not feeling alone. Join us spreading Parkinson's awareness! #KnowParkinsons
