DID YOU KNOW?

April has long been observed as Parkinson’s Awareness Month, as it is the birth month of James Parkinson, the London physician who was the first to describe Parkinson’s disease in 1817.

Parkinson’s Awareness Month is
an opportunity to increase
awareness about this disease and
its symptoms, as well as a way to
offer support to those who suffer
from it. The red tulip has been the global symbol of Parkinson’s
disease (PD) since 2005.
