"For providers trying to coordinate care for patients in California, there has never been a resource like the California Parkinson's Support Network. It has assisted us in directing patients towards resources specific to their region, and empowers patients in their search for the most cutting edge therapies, and where these can be accessed. We are so grateful that this website has helped link both providers and patient advocacy groups in northern and southern California, as it has allowed for interchange of new ideas among like-minded organizations. Thank you for making this available for our patients and for us as providers!"
