The Delmarva Parkinson's Alliance was established to serve the Parkinson's support groups in the State of Delaware and the eastern shore portions of the States of Maryland and Virginia. It's purpose is to promote communication and provide resources that improve the quality of care for individuals with Parkinson's disease and their caregivers throughout the Delmarva Peninsula.
Organized in January, 2010, DPA is a collaborative effort of local support groups throughout the Delmarva Peninsula. With generous assistance from regional health care and research institutions, Parkinson's Disease and Movement Disorders Centers, and national Parkinson's disease foundations, the Alliance seeks to raise public awareness and understanding of the disease as well as help improve the knowledge and treatment of members of the Parkinson's community.
