Parkinson's Action Network (PAN) serves as the voice of Parkinson's on numerous public policy issues affecting the Parkinson's community. In addition to continuing their work on NIH funding and research, the PAN community is now a powerful voice on many crucial issues including Parkinson's-specific programs at the Departments of Defense and Veteran's Affairs, FDA drug approval issues, HHS programs (Medicare and Social Security), and the continuing struggle to achieve research freedom for stem cell research.
The Parkinson's Action Network has established a strong national grassroots advocacy program, which drives success on PD-related issues. PAN continues to be the leading voice for patient advocacy in Washington, D.C., working to bring much-needed awareness to the public and lawmakers about the effects of Parkinson's disease. With greater understanding, we will make great strides in finding better treatments and a cure for Parkinson's disease.
