Act on parkinson’s in the illawarra / shoalhaven
Act on Parkinson’s is an education campaign being launched by AbbVie Australia with support from Parkinson’s NSW in the Illawarra / Shoalhaven region to encourage people who are affected by Parkinson’s and advanced Parkinson’s disease to be better informed about the condition and appropriate management.
The initiative aims to embolden people living with Parkinson’s disease to play an active role in the management of their illness.
This is especially important for patients located in regional areas who may not be aware of the local treatment and support capabilities available to them.
The campaign features radio and digital advertisements including a video message from Narrawallee resident Christene Jones who has been living with Parkinson’s for over 20 years. Watch the full video here: https://youtu.be/xqsr716eGLI
