Parkinson's Action Network (PAN) is just one of 35,000+ groups listed by members at iGive. Here's a little more detail on them, as provided by members or the organization itself:
The Parkinson's Action Network (PAN) is the unified voice of the Parkinson’s disease community—advocating for more than one million Americans and their families.
Today PAN serves as the voice of Parkinson’s on numerous public policy issues affecting the Parkinson’s community. In addition to continuing our work on NIH funding and research, the Parkinson’s 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 our continuing struggle to achieve research freedom for stem cell research.
We at PAN have established a strong national grassroots advocacy program, which drives our 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. We hope that with greater understanding, we will make great strides in finding better treatments and a cure for Parkinson’s disease.
