Are we 'Parkinson's friendly'?

Here’s one statistic Minnesota doesn’t want to brag about – it’s the third largest state per capita impacted by Parkinson’s disease (PD). An estimated 20,000 people are living with PD in Minnesota; the only states with greater PD impact are North Dakota and South Dakota.

The National Parkinson Foundation Minnesota (NPFM) is working to create Parkinson’s-friendly communities across the Upper Midwest. According to organizers, this isn’t a bricks and mortar project, but is rather about ensuring individuals and families touched by PD remain vibrant, engaged members of their communities.
