About Northwest Parkinson’s



Poetry is just one way that we’re raising awareness of Parkinson’s this April. Visit our website for more about us, including: programs, blog posts, news, events & services around the Northwest!

Northwest Parkinson’s Foundation is the only independent organization for people impacted by Parkinson’s in the Northwest. In 1998, we worked hard to bring the first Movement Disorder Specialist and Parkinson’s care to the region. Over 20 years later, our staff & social services team is still doing their best work to connect individuals, carepartners, and their communities with the local resources they need.

We serve the whole family,

because no one should walk the Parkinson’s journey alone.


Parkinson’s & Poetry is inspired by and for the NW Parkinson’s community. From Seattle poet Mary Edwards to speech classes for Parkinson’s, art & poems are showing up across the region: individual creations, spoken word, spontaneous group poems, readings, and endlessly more.
