The Stanford Parkinson's Community Outreach team provides those with Parkinson's Disease (PD), their families, caregivers, physicians, and other healthcare professionals with education, assistance, and resources. Our goal is to improve the quality of life for the person with PD, the caregiver, and the community.
Our website, blog, YouTube channel, and mailing lists focus on English-language materials. We also have webpages of Spanish-language and Chinese-language materials as well.
Our referral services are available to anyone in Northern or Central California, whether affiliated with Stanford or not.
