Welcome to the latest edition of E Parkinson Post!

With Parkinson Society Canada poised to look back on almost 45 years of history (2010 will mark our 45th anniversary), we have decided in this issue to highlight some of the things that make Parkinson Society Canada uniquely yours.

We focus on how people with Parkinson’s, their families, volunteers, researchers and clinicians have come together to create a supportive community across the country and how Parkinson Society Canada has become the national organization Canadians with Parkinson’s look to for support, education, research and advocacy.

You will hear from a person with Parkinson’s and two caregivers who can attest to the value of the help and support they receive from Parkinson Society Canada and its regional partners.

We provide a look at our national research program and bring you up to date on the achievements of some of our previously and currently-funded researchers.

There is also an overview of our advocacy efforts on your behalf and links to Parkinson Society Canada’s latest Position Statements which are posted on the website.

Comments, questions and story ideas are always welcome. You can send them to editor@parkinson.ca

We hope you enjoy this issue.
