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:
Ending Sequestration and Preserving Access to Therapy Services and Treatment
A bipartisan budget conference committee  opened negotiations on October 30, 2013 to find a path forward on Fiscal Year 2014 spending and to address sequestration, which will remain in effect through 2021 if Congress does not take action. The committee has a self-imposed deadline of December 13 to reach an agreement. PAN sent a letter to all 29 members of the committee urging them to:
Join PAN and the Parkinson’s community in our efforts to ensure every single Member of Congress understands that we cannot afford any more cuts to medical research funding and innovation – and we cannot allow people with Parkinson’s to be denied life-changing therapy services.
Take action today  and tell your Members of Congress to end sequestration and support policies that strengthen research and Parkinson’s care.
