|Mission & Goals||
Since 1983, the Michigan Parkinson Foundation (MPF) has focused on the educational and support needs of people with Parkinson's, their families and health professionals. Through a strategic planning process, the following have been developed as guiding principles:
To educate and provide support to people with Parkinson's and related disorders, their loved ones and care partners, and the physicians and other allied health professionals who diagnose and treat those affected by the illness.
To support research into the mechanisms underlying the disease and therapeutic strategies aimed at reducing the burden of illness.
To engage and enlist the support of institutions and individuals whose activities impact the needs of people with Parkinson's and related disorders.
MPF will be the premier education and support organization in Michigan for people with PD, their care partners, and the physicians and allied health professionals that diagnose and treat PD patients.
Every person with Parkinson's and related disorders shall receive responsive compassionate quality care and support.
