PSGFL was formed in July 2008 with 12 participants. Some people with Parkinson's and their care partners had been traveling to Rochester to learn about the disease; however, in time, the desire was to meet more locally.
Membership has grown and remains close to 200 with new members joining every month. Approximately 40-60 regularly attend these monthly meetings. Those attending travel from 10 western and central New York counties. When some of our members no longer can comfortably make the meetings, they remain connected via e-mail.
