Parkinson’s disease Day was held on 12 April; about 100,000 people in France suffer from it.

Parkinson’s disease was described for the first time by James Parkinson in 1817; it is a degenerative condition, often of unknown origin. The disease mainly affects people aged over 60. The first symptoms for diagnosing the illness are a slowing of movement, stiffness, and shaking of the hands and/or feet when at rest.
