Parkinson Awareness Month 2023: Get Involved!

In the month of April LSVT Global will work along with the global Parkinson’s community to increase awareness of Parkinson’s disease in honor of the more than 10 million people worldwide living with PD. This month is full of events and activities to raise awareness and opportunities to get involved! It’s time to get up, get moving, get vocal and raise awareness about PD.

Here’s a highlight on some of the events that LSVT Global is supporting for Parkinson’s awareness and partnering with organizations around the world. Join us as we get BIG and LOUD with events like these and with others this month and throughout the year!
