2017 Community Survey
At NWPF, we estimate that over 100,000 people live with Parkinson’s in the vast areas of the Northwest—a territory of one million square miles! That’s why we asked YOU how we could have the greatest impact in the lives of people affected by Parkinson’s throughout the Northwest.
In 2017, with the support of the University of Washington Community Based Learning & Research Team, we conducted a formal needs assessment of the Northwest Parkinson’s community. Over the course of six months, people from 297 zip codes responded, including: people with Parkinson’s, those diagnosed with young onset, carepartners, family members, and service providers.
