Northwest Parkinson's Foundation Partners


Northwest Parkinson’s Foundation (NW Parkinson’s) is pleased to be a member of the Independent Parkinson’s Network (IPN), a consortium formed with the shared goals of finding a cure for Parkinson’s and supporting those who live with the disease. IPN encourages collaboration, leverages organizational strengths and maximizes efficiency within its member organizations, which includes:

The creation of IPN formalized a collaboration that began in 2009 between several independent regional nonprofit organizations, who have now become IPN’s founding members.  This partnership has allowed IPN to grow significantly over the years and in 2021, IPN now functions as a stand-alone organization.

The Northwest Parkinson’s Foundation is a proud member of IPN, accessing the many benefits of shared resources and perspectives from prominent and innovative Parkinson’s organizations from across the country. By expanding communication on a national scale, we are devoted to adopting new ideas and treatments generated through IPN and will continue to provide the latest services and programs to help people affected by the disease. IPN provides the opportunity to collaborate with our peers around the country who are also providing valuable services to their local Parkinson’s communities:

To be accepted to IPN, members must be able to demonstrate their credentials as independent nonprofit Parkinson’s organizations by offering programs and direct services to their local community that aim to improve quality of life and daily living to those living with Parkinson’s or caring for a loved one with Parkinson’s. Nonprofit organizations that are interested in learning about IPN should contact Kathleen Crist, Chair.
