Ask Congress to Help Communities Provide the Foundation for Better Health

Our health is impacted by where we live and work. Over our lifetime, access to food, housing, employment, clean water and air, and physical activity affect our health and well-being. These “social determinants of health” impact quality of life for people and families with Parkinson's.

Congress is considering legislation that would provide communities with financial support to improve the social and economic factors that impact the health of people and their communities. The Social Determinants Accelerator Act of 2021 (H.R. 2503/S. 3039) would provide access to important resources including better nutrition and exercise opportunities and programs that reduce health risks.

We support this bill, and we need you to ask your Senators and Representative in Congress to pass it before the end of the year.
