April is Parkinson’s Awareness Month

Parkinson’s Action Network:  Approximately 80,000 veterans living with Parkinson’s disease receive care at the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). Unfortunately, our service members are routinely exposed to a wide range of toxins and hazards that may lead to the development of Parkinson’s disease. PAN works to ensure that veterans living with Parkinson’s disease have access to the care and benefits they have earned.
