Federal Initiatives

The Parkinson’s Action Network (PAN) works on a wide range of policy initiatives in order to achieve better governmental policies for the treatment and prevention of Parkinson’s disease and an improved quality of life for those living with the disease.  

Current Key Initiatives:

Federal Research Funding and Gaining Access to Telehealth Services

  • PAN has taken a leadership role in the Parkinson’s and broader health advocacy community around the issue of telehealth by advocating to remove the current policy barriers to the practice of telehealth. Telehealth could allow people with Parkinson's to see specialists via telecommunications technology.
