Parkinson’s Awareness Week 2015 will be April 20th – 26th 2015. This year’s campaign encourages people, everywhere, to be more friendly, patient and forgiving. See the Parkinson’s UK website, at Parkinson’s Awareness Week 2015, to learn more about this campaign and “up your friendly”.
A Parkinson’s UK survey of 2,000 people with Parkinson’s Disease found that over half have experienced hostility or rudeness from members of the public, who are perhaps unaware of the nature of this condition.
