Your support and contributions will enable us to provide free education, referral, wellness, & support to people with Parkinson's and their Care Partners in the Cedar Rapids and Iowa City area.
As of August 2021, our programs are back to online only. This is due to the fast-spreading Delta variant, the high percentage of unvaccinated individuals in Iowa, and the high rate of hospitalizations among unvaccinated individuals. Due to the high risk of our participants, safety and health is the utmost concern.
Please click on the ABOUT US/PROGRAMS tab to find the dates and times for exercise classes and support meetings, as well as Zoom links.
If you need assistance using Zoom, please email email@example.com
We will continue to monitor the situation to determine when it is safe for our community to meet in-person again.
These guidelines are subject to change based on federal, local and hospital recommendations as well as virus and vaccine rates.
*Please get the COVID vaccine if you haven't for the safety of our community and to stop the spread. Children under 12 are not eligible for the vaccine, placing them at high risk for the virus when exposed to those who are not vaccinated. The vaccine is safe. Risks from COVID outweigh any side effects of the vaccine. Please visit the Linn County or Johnson County Public Health websites for trusted, local information.
Thank you for keeping our community safe and healthy!

The group has grown over the years, adding exercise and wellness programs. In 2017, the Cedar Rapids Metro Parkinson's Association was founded as a non-profit 501c3.
