9zest is celebrating Parkinson’s Awareness Month with its engagement campaign #IAmUnshaken on the web and social media. Aiming to address, discuss, and educate people about challenges posed by the neurological disorder, the campaign is creating buzz on social media already.
#IAmUnshaken is an effort by Team 9zest to connect with Parkinson’s fighters across the globe, to make them more informed about the condition through informational blogs, guides, and interesting research findings.
What is Parkinson’s Awareness Month?
World Parkinson’s Day commemorates the birth date of Dr James Parkinson’s who first formally identified the disease nearly 200 years ago. Parkinson’s Awareness Month is an awareness initiative held in the United States and Canada each year so that it reaches to more people affected by the condition – directly or through a loved one. For those who are not suffering from Parkinson’s, the month can be seen as an opportunity to speed progress towards finding the elusive cure (by fundraising the awareness events and research).
2018 marks the 201st anniversary of Parkinson’s disease. While it’s been far too long for Parkinson’s fighters and their loved ones to wait, significant scientific progress has been recorded in the last few decades alone – a cause of tremendous optimism.
