My name is Denny Darby. I work for the Northwest Parkinson’s Foundation as the Resource Coordinator for the state of Alaska. I live in Juneau. My job is to identify people with Parkinson’s disease throughout Alaska, form Parkinson’s support groups whenever possible and support individuals or groups with resources provided by the Northwest Parkinson’s Foundation. Our services and resources are 100% free.

Some of the available resources offered by the Northwest Parkinson’s Foundation include access to a Movement Disorder Specialist (a neurologist specializing in Parkinson’s disease), social workers, education, exercise classes and much more.

If you have Parkinson’s disease, are interested in forming a Parkinson’s support group, or want more information, please call 907-956-8009 or email
