Also in April: Parkinson's Disease Awareness

We've been hearing a lot about autism this month, but April is also Parkinson's Disease Awareness Month. Parkinson's disease (PD) is a progressive brain disorder caused by a decrease in the neurotransmitter dopamine, leading a person to have less control over his or her movements, body, and emotions. Complications from PD is the 14th top cause of death in the United States, but people can live with it for years. For more information, go to http://parkinson.org/.
