We are a small nonprofit organization dedicated to serving the needs of people touched by Parkinson's Disease in the state of Nebraska. We understand that the need is great, as Nebraska has one of the highest concentrations of Parkinson's Disease. We respect that each individual's journey with Parkinson's disease is very unique, and we are committed to responding the needs of our community. We offer responsive programming in the form of specialized exercise classes that have been proven to help increase life quality and manage symptoms, and educational programs to help arm people with information and stay up to date on the latest research, community resources and treatment options. We utilize a collaborative approach, and work to connect people to resources available throughout the community. We recognize the Parkinson's community itself as a valuable resource and we work hard to build connections. Parkinson's Nebraska: A Journey Shared.
