LA Parkinson's Resources: PCLA Transportation Program

PCLA’s support groups offer an opportunity to meet others who understand that challenges you face daily. We have mixed groups as well as groups just for care partners, women with PD, men with PD, the young onset population, and more. Most of our groups are virtual, but our Sharing Our Strength group meets in person in Westwood once a month.
