Parkinson & Movement Disorder Alliance (PMD Alliance), an independent national nonprofit dedicated to providing opportunities for people with movement disorders to learn, live more fully and spark meaningful connections around them, is celebrating 5 years of service, programming and impact around the country, it reports in a media release.
PMD Alliance works with different audiences impacted by and involved with movement disorders including the person with the diagnosis, family and friends, medical experts, speech and physical therapists and social and civic groups. Through in-person and virtual workshops and online resources, the organization provides the latest medical and wellness information for people living with a diagnosis.
Since its founding in 2015 by chief executive officer Sarah Jones, PMD Alliance has provided real, honest and empathic services that moved the needle on quality of life and reduced isolation faced by people living with movement disorders. Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, the organization hosted 91 virtual workshops, according to the release.
“PMD Alliance has grown tremendously over the past five years, adding new and innovative programming and reaching more people around the United States and globally who are part of the movement disorder ecosystem.
“Our community of patients, care partners and medical and wellness experts are working hand in hand to support each other and we look forward to many more years of impact.”
