World Parkinson’s Day 2023

April 11, 2023

World Parkinson’s Day will be held on 11 April 2023. It’s an International Day of Recognition to raise awareness of Parkinson’s Disease and its impact on people with Parkinson’s, their carers, families, and loved ones.

Our aim for this World Parkinson’s Day is to increase public awareness about the early warning signs of Parkinson’s and encourage people to seek professional advice if they are experiencing any symptoms.
