Get to Know PAA

Since its founding in 1978, the Parkinson Association of Alabama (PAA) has been dedicated to one mission: improving the quality of life for patients, caregivers and families affected by Parkinson’s disease in the state of Alabama. 


You want and deserve a cure. We work to find one. Through efforts of support groups, funding and targeted research, we strive to guide you through tough times, foster a community of safety and empathy and contribute to healing.


We can achieve this goal because we understand. If you or a loved one has been affected, we’ve been in your place. Many of our founders include medical professionals and caregivers, patients or family members affected by Parkinson’s disease.


PAA represents all of those affected by Parkinson’s disease throughout the state of Alabama, regardless of their location. Our Board of Directors remains up to date on the latest legislative and research information to provide knowledge and understanding for everyone affected by Parkinson’s disease. Whatever you’re going through, we are here to support you.


You are not walking alone.
