The California Parkinson's Disease Registry (CPDR) established at the California Department of Public Health is at risk of being shut down.
The California Assembly and state Senate have unanimously passed legislation (A.B. 715) to extend the registry until January 1, 2021, and the bill now sits on Governor Newsom's desk awaiting a signature or veto by October 13. But your action is needed now. Why?
The California Medical Association is pressuring the governor to veto the bill. We cannot let that happen!
Please contact Governor Newsom TODAY and urge him to sign the bill!
This registry is a critical data collection effort that could truly transform Parkinson's disease care and treatment, and could one day be pivotal for finding a cure.
Please call, email, and tweet Governor Newsom and ask him to sign A.B. 715 - don't let special interests kill this important Parkinson's registry!
