Hello and welcome to the Connecticut Advocates for Parkinsons' website.
This group was first formed in October 2006. After an extravagant inauguration, eight people attended the second meeting. As we approach our sixth year Anniversary, we proudly maintain two chapters (PYOSSG of CT ~ Southbury & YYAPA ~ Hartford), with an average of 40 members attending the monthly meetings. We also have over 120 people that are in our data base receiving information regarding the pursuit of a cure for Parkinson's Disease.
On October 27, 2011, the chapters received a 501C3 Not for Profit certification. Many members have dedicated much time and personal funds in bringing speakers, researchers and elite doctors to our meetings with hopes of helping us understand the disease. Our newest chapter has placed an emphasis on "active" programs, with several exercise programs, as well as introducing alternative treatments. We have also gained international notoriety for our involvement with clinical trials.
Our dedication to support one another, and ambition to "make a difference" continues to grow. It is with this growing commitment to provide our community a better quality of life, and relief from this disease, that we ask you to consider becoming of member of CAP.
