Parkinson Association of Northern California Announces Clinician After Visit Information Sheet

Helpful tool offers encouragement and connects people with Parkinson's to the area's local support groups.
SACRAMENTO, Calif. - March 2, 2022 - PRLog -- The Parkinson Association of Northern California (PANC) published an information sheet for physicians to include in post visit summaries for people with Parkinson's disease (PD). The document, called ".PANC," or a "dot PANC" document, offers Sacramento-area physicians a fast, easy way of providing information on local PD support groups and resources to people with Parkinson's (PwP).

The .PANC document helps PwP find local support groups to help them navigate the difficult journey Parkinson's disease presents. Parkinson's support groups are a safe place to share information, experiences and knowledge about Parkinson's disease, both for patients and caregivers. The document was created by members of PANC's Support Group Advisory Committee and Medical Advisory Panel to make the Parkinson's community aware of its local support groups and available resources.

"This document opens the door for so many people who are newly diagnosed and have no idea what to do next" says PANC Executive Director Will Zrnchik. "We are learning more Northern Californians are living with Parkinson's than we thought. It is our duty to support them on this journey." If you would like a copy of the .PANC document in English or Spanish for your office, please contact the PANC offices at (916) 357-6641 or
