May 2022 | Parkinson's Foundation and SAGE
The Parkinson’s Foundation estimates that close to 100,000 LGBTQ+ people in the U.S. are living with Parkinson’s disease (PD). Parkinson’s, a degenerative neurological disorder, requires early diagnosis and consistent treatment. As trusted voices in communities across America, LGBTQ+ Community Centers and Health Centers are able to make a significant impact on the lives of community members living with and affected by Parkinson’s. The Parkinson’s Foundation and SAGE co-created this guide to highlight things you can do right now to support LGBTQ+ people living with PD in your community.
