toolkit 6

As people in the Parkinson' s community know, you can -- and often must -- be your own best advocate. Our new Parkinson's Advocacy Toolkit can help you take part in the public policy process and speak up for your needs.
   
The toolkit provides:
  • Information on current policy issues, including health care reform and research funding,
  • Tips on building relationships with members of Congress and educating them on what is fundamentally important to people with Parkinson's and their loved ones, and
  • Best practices for using social
    and traditional media to advocate.

P.S. This August, Congress will break for its annual recess and lawmakers will head to their home states to meet with constituents. Use the toolkit to get involved!
