Alliance of Independent Regional Parkinson Organizations
The Alliance of Independent Regional Parkinson Organizations (AIRPO) is a consortium of regional independent nonprofit organizations, with the shared goals of finding a cure for Parkinson's and supporting those who live with the disease. AIRPO aims to enrich programs available to the Parkinson's disease community by encouraging collaboration, leveraging organizational strengths and maximizing efficiency amongst its founding member organizations, which include: Houston Area Parkinson Society, Michigan Parkinson Foundation, Northwest Parkinson's Foundation, Parkinson Association of the Carolinas and Parkinson Association of the Rockies. The Parkinson's Disease Foundation offers administrative support to AIRPO.
AIRPO formalizes a collaboration that began in 2009 between the Parkinson's Disease Foundation and several independent regional nonprofit organizations. Each AIRPO member organization will leverage the collective knowledge and strengths to improve the lives of people living with Parkinson's disease.
To be accepted to AIRPO, members must be independent nonprofit organizations and have a mission that is clearly dedicated to improving the lives of people living with Parkinson's disease.
