Parkinson's Disease

Nearly one million people in the United States are living with Parkinson's disease, a number expected to rise to 1.2 million by 2030. Parkinson's is the second-most common neurodegenerative disease after Alzheimer's disease with approximately 60,000 Americans are diagnosed each year.
