About Central Coast Parkinson Association

The Central Coast Parkinson Association is a 501(c) (3) non-profit based in San Luis Obispo, CA and serving people with Parkinson's Disease, their care partners, and local Parkinson’s focused health professionals on the Central Coast covering San Luis Obispo County and northern Santa Barbara County.  Our mission is four-fold:  to direct programs and activities for people with Parkinson's disease; to provide education programs for the public; to promote the exchange of information with health care professionals; and to encourage and support Parkinson research.

In support of these goals we are committed to:
  • Providing encouragement, support and assistance as needed to the various established support groups being held throughout the Central Coast. We have a wonderful group of leaders doing a great job with Support Groups and Caregiver Support mettings. They are truly unsung heroes. 
  • We fund Parkinson Research through our fabulous partner The Central Coast Follies, who have raised over $369,000 for the Parkinson Alliance over the past 15 years. 
  • We look forward to providing more high quality educational programs as well as connecting with and learning from our expanding group of healthcare professionals and coaches with Parkinson's specialty training and certification.
