State Rep. Diana DiZoglio (D-Methuen) will host Parkinson’s Disease Awareness Day at the Massachusetts State House on Weds., April 11.

DiZoglio recently sponsored a resolution, co-sponsored by more than 40 other legislators from across the Commonwealth, proclaiming the month of April as Parkinson’s Disease Awareness Month in Mass. The Representative will present the resolution during the event.

Parkinson’s Disease is a chronic, progressive neurological disease, with no treatment to slow or halt its progression, that affects an estimated one million Americans and is the 14th leading cause of death in the United States.

The Awareness Day, which is scheduled to begin at 11a.m. in Room 428 of the State House, is free and open to the public.
