Our Impact

We hope to provide an opportunity for students to learn more about Parkinson's Disease and the experiences of the who have Parkinson's. 

Our program wants to help people with Parkinson's feel more supported by virtually connecting them with a college student who will talk with them, listen to them, and hopefully be seen as a friend to them.

We hope to create happiness and joy by fostering intergenerational connections between students and people with Parkinson's creating a collaborative, supportive, and caring community for both the patients and students.
