PNN is dedicated to helping individuals and families living with Parkinson’s Disease with friendship, information, personal support and advocacy for a cure. We do this through a program of Support Groups, telephone support and through social and educational events.
We conduct Parkinson’s Support Group meetings in Traverse City, Suttons Bay (Leelanau County) and Frankfort (Benzie County: we invite you to come, join us, and learn that you’re not alone in the Parkinson’s journey. We provide telephone support, too: call Hettie (231-948-7389) or Maxine (231-947-1946) if you have questions about Parkinson’s, are newly-diagnosed or just wonder if you have Parkinson’s. And we organize social and educational events and the popular Summer Forum.
We are an independent non-profit 501(c)(3) volunteer organization serving Northwest Michigan. We partner with state, national and international Parkinson’s organizations to keep up with scientific developments and Parkinson’s news to share with our members (see Resources).
We Care, we Share, and we Listen. And we’re always looking for volunteers to share their time and talents.
