Become a Champion of Parkinson's SA
As a Champion of Parkinson’s SA & NT, a charity of The Hospital Research Foundation (THRF) Group, you support our purpose to maximise choice, independence and well-being for people affected by Parkinson’s or another movement disorder through support, education and advocacy. Parkinson’s Champions help us advocate in a greater capacity to ensure people with Parkinson’s have every opportunity to live well, now and through the progression of their journey with Parkinson’s.
As a Champion you will be kept up to date with the latest in Parkinson’s research and technological advances, and importantly your subscription makes sure that you are the first to hear about new supports, therapies, and trials that you may wish to participate in.
