A key EPDA strategic aim is to “facilitate the free flow of good Parkinson’s-related practices across and between European countries” – and this statement lies at the heart of our membership offer.

What the EPDA can offer you.

We share

By becoming an EPDA member, we will share information about what is happening in the wider-world of Parkinson’s, outside of your own country. You will be able to exchange good practice and connect with like-minded organisations.

  • We provide high-quality and up-to-date Parkinson’s information via our website, social media, mailshots and Parkinson’s Life online magazine.
