Welcome aboard the San Diego Central County Parkinson’s Support Groups website. We are also known locally as ‘Central County’ Parkinson’s Support Groups”.

We’ve done our level best to provide a
safe and welcoming digital space tailored to meet the needs of those members of Parkinson's support groups located in and around the San Diego metropolitan area. Our mission is to provide information and facilitate communication while collaborating with others to improve the quality of life for people with Parkinson's, their families and caregivers.

There are a number of travel posters, banners and the like sprinkled throughout this site (like the one of the Empire State Building on the lower left or the International Space Station patch below.

The click of a mouse on each one will take you on a light-hearted virtual journey somewhere. Some of us don’t get out much these days what with a persistent global pandemic and all - but that shouldn’t preclude us from having a bit of fun while vicariously exploring the world.
