NPF South Florida was started in order to grow programs and services in Miami-Dade and Broward counties. Working along side the Herbert Kay Parkinson and the ParkOptimists’, these experienced chapters have served the Aventura & Coral Gables communities for many years, and we are grateful for their knowledge and guidance as we grow to serve the unmet needs in our communities.
“To create a better quality of life for all those in our communities affected Parkinson’s disease.”
Parkinson’s disease is the second most common neurodegenerative disease after Alzheimer’s, affecting more than a million people in the United States and an estimated four million worldwide. The prevalence of the disease is expected to increase substantially in the next 20 years due to the aging of the population in the U.S., Europe and globally, as well as an increase in the age-related incidence of the disease.
