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.
