The New Jersey Chapter is one of many Chapters of the American Parkinson Disease Association (APDA). As the grassroots organization for Parkinson's disease, the NJ Chapter of APDA and its Information & Referral Center (I&R Center) are committed to programs and activities for people with Parkinson's disease and their Caregivers.
This local network forms the basis of the grassroots campaign to help raise Parkinson's disease awareness and overcome the unique challenges of living with Parkinson's disease.
The Chapter's members are its greatest supporters, giving of their time and financial resources to strengthen the grassroots effort. Through greater awareness and broad community, corporate and charitable support, the Chapter will achieve its goal to extend local assistance programs to the farthest reaches of its geographic territory.
