Struthers Parkinson’s Care Network was founded in 2013 to provide inclusive, sustainable and collaborative educational opportunities for senior organizations. The network started with a six-site pilot program, and has grown to encompass sites in multiple states across the US.
Struthers Parkinson’s Care Network prepares organizations to provide quality care for individuals with Parkinson’s disease (PD). In the United States, one person is diagnosed with PD every nine minutes, which averages to 60,000 American’s being diagnosed with PD annually. The number of Parkinson’s disease cases if projected to more than double in the next decade. These statistics necessitate organizations to become leaders in their community and highlight their commitment to persons with PD.
Struthers Parkinson’s Care Network provides a full curriculum of PD education. Our training is designed to prepare, empower and motivate site staff with ongoing support from PD experts. We help organizations develop and maintain best practices in PD care.
