Hear about the The PD Avengers
Tuesday, 14th September 2021

The PD Avengers are a global alliance of people with Parkinson’s, partners and friends, standing together demanding change in how the disease is seen and treated. Shake It Up are proud to be a partner of the PD Avengers and collaborating with other leading organisations around the world in the fight against Parkinson’s.

The PD Avengers have three pillars of focus: wellness, advocacy, and research.

We believe every person living with PD should have equitable access to basic therapies & resources.

We believe we have been too silent for too long. That we must become a loud, uncomfortable, ever-present voice demanding change in how the disease is seen and treated.

We believe Parkinson’s can be eliminated through prevention and research. We demand that greater resources and urgency be placed on ending the disease and eliminating man-made triggers that cause it.

We add urgency to research, wellness, and advocacy by uniting people and organizations to the cause of ending Parkinson’s.



For this two-episode podcast takeover, PD Avengers Co-founders Larry Gifford, Tim Hague and Soania Mathur, MD, will speak one-on-one with Parkinson’s organizations from around the world for a deep dive on what differentiates their mission and how people and families with PD can get involved today.
