MDS for Parkinson’s Disease
World Parkinson’s Day - April 11, 2021
The International Parkinson and Movement Disorder Society (MDS) advocates for Parkinson’s disease throughout the world, while at the same time promoting public awareness of the MDS mission to disseminate knowledge and promote research in order to favorably affect the care of patients.
Though many events and activities planned for World Parkinson's Day have now been cancelled due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, MDS is moving forward with this initative in order to support other partner organizations and the global Parkinson's community.
Throughout the month of April, MDS will aim to raise awareness about Parkinson’s disease by sharing relevant information, articles and resources for physicians, as well as patients and caregivers, through the MDS social media channels.
As an MDS initiative, please use the hashtag #MDS4Parkinsons to showcase what MDS members are doing around the world to mark this occasion.
MDS is partnering with other organizations to raise awareness about Parkinson’s disease by using the hashtag #UniteforParkinsons. For World Parkinson’s Day, April 11, 2021, and throughout the month, please use this hashtag on social media to voice your support of the Parkinson’s community.
