World Parkinson's Day 2019

Every year on the 11th of April (the anniversary of Dr James Parkinson’s birthday in 1755), we ‘celebrate’ World Parkinson’s Day. This is an opportunity to rally the troops, bringing together Parkinson’s communities from all over the world to raise awareness, publicise efforts and share latest research advances. 

With so many events held worldwide and online, there are opportunities for everyone to join in and #unite.

Everyone can make a difference, everyone’s voice must count. Get involved, share this page, any links to research updates within it, surveys and resources… Now is probably the most exciting time in PD research, be a part of it and spread the word!


If you do one thing to help us this World Parkinson’s Day, please support our research efforts by completing one of the surveys above!
