Resources in Southern California

Stanford Parkinson's Community Outreach and Stanford APDA Information & Referral Center, based at Stanford University Medical Center in Northern California, does not cover Southern California (or any other US region) as part of our information/resource efforts. As we get a lot of phone calls from Southern California, we have created this short webpage of Parkinson's Disease resources in Southern California. Check out this webpage for national resources.
