The core of our efforts is the NPF Center of Excellence network, 44 leading medical centers around the globe that deliver care to more than 50,000 Parkinson’s patients. Through this network, NPF creates a community of health care professionals dedicated to improving clinical care in Parkinson’s disease. In each of our research, education and outreach programs, NPF is dedicated to promoting our passionate belief that the best care is a comprehensive approach that addresses the whole person and the full range of symptoms of the disease
