Fall 2015 Newsletter


(Kingston, NJ, November 24, 2015)  In our Fall 2015 Newsletter, we’re sharing with you pictures and stories from the 2015 Parkinson's Unity Walk.  We've also shared with you that 2015 Research Grants have been awarded.

The 2015 Unity Walk raised over $1.7 million dollars for research.  Every penny has been distributed to seven foundations and they are now funding research into treatments and cures for Parkinson’s disease.  In this newsletter, we’re sharing with you information about two research studies that your support has made possible.

One study is investigating a new approach to treating depression for people with Parkinson’s disease.  The Unity Walk is also funding an exciting new potential disease-modifying therapy that is almost ready for the Phase III trial, and this study is being supported by the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
