APDA Northwest was founded by a dedicated group of volunteers to support the needs of approximately 60,000 people with Parkinson's in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana and Alaska. We are a local chapter of American Parkinson Disease Association (APDA), which is the country’s oldest and largest grassroots organization serving the Parkinson’s community.
APDA Northwest aims to fulfill our mission locally by everyday providing the support, education, and research that will help everyone impacted by Parkinson’s disease live life to the fullest. This dual mission of helping people live better today, while also fighting for a better tomorrow is unique in the Northwest.
Parkinson’s disease affects 10 million people worldwide, more than MS, ALS and Muscular Dystrophy combined, making it the second most common neurological disorder. With our aging population, these numbers are only going to grow. Currently, the cause is unknown and there is no cure or treatment to stop the progression of the disease.
