We are the East Texas Chapter
of the American Parkinson Disease Association (APDA). An estimated 1.6 million Americans have Parkinson's disease. Parkinson's
Disease is a slowly progressive brain disorder resulting in the loss of dopamine production. Dopamine is the neuro-transmitter
responsible for aiding in body movements. Symptoms include slowness of movement, tremor, muscle stiffness, and postural instability.
To date there is no cure.
The purpose of our website is to offer PD patients, caregivers, family and friends
in East Texas a place to get the latest on research, clinical trials, programs, events, educational seminars, support
groups, fundraising activities and other valuable information.
Let us know if there is something we
can add or change to make our site better for you and the Parkinson's community of East Texas. Please check back often
as we will be updating on a monthly basis to keep you informed on the latest information.
