PD Avengers –The Global Alliance to End Parkinson’s
with co-founder, Larry Gifford
Special Evening Event!
Wednesday, March 8th
7:00pm – 8:30pm ET
This non-profit organization is a global alliance of people with Parkinson’s, our partners and friends, standing together demanding change in how the disease is seen and treated. PD Avengers adds urgency to the cause of ending Parkinson’s disease focusing on supporting people with Parkinson’s and other PD organizations through wellness, advocacy and research collaborations.
Larry was diagnosed with Young Onset Parkinson’s Disease at the age of 45 in August 2017. In 2020, Larry read the book “Ending Parkinson’s Disease.” It sparked a series of Zoom calls during the early days of COVID to discuss the concepts of the book. As it ultimately is a prescription for action, The PD Avengers were born in the Fall of 2020.
In this evening event, Larry will share with us information about how the PD Avengers are working worldwide to end Parkinson’s disease and how you can get involved!
