Parkinson’s Awareness Month

April is Parkinson’s Awareness Month, with 11 April officially recognised as World Parkinson’s Day. Throughout this month, we will use this opportunity to acknowledge and raise awareness of the challenges faced by those living with Parkinson’s disease through various events and awareness sessions.

NT PHN is proud to commission the only movement disorder program in the Territory in collaboration with NT Health.
