The Parkinson’s Outreach Association, Inc. (POA) presents educational and informative seminars throughout the year.

The POA aims to teach people in North Florida about Parkinson’s disease so that they may be able to recognize early warning signs, feel supported in their decision to seek medical treatment and are provided with outstanding emotional, physical and mental support.

Because caregivers and loved ones often play the biggest role in supporting people with Parkinson’s disease, our organization offers resources for them as well to prevent fatigue and burn-out.

Our educational and informative seminars are held throughout the year. Stay tuned for details on the next seminar.
