APDA Northwest is a small but mighty chapter that relies heavily on volunteers and interns. We have a vast number of opportunities from one-time projects to ongoing needs, from patient programs, fundraising, and office work to specific expertise in areas of expertise. Your time and effort can improve the lives of those impacted by Parkinson disease.
In addition to the ongoing general volunteer and intern needs, we also have the following specific needs:
