About the Davis Phinney Foundation

Inspired. That’s how people who come in contact with the Davis Phinney Foundation describe their experience – whether it be from the information we provide, the research and programs we support, or the Moments of Victory® we help people to celebrate.

While it’s critical to find a cure for Parkinson’s, we feel strongly that people living with this disease also need information and tools to live well today. To support this mission, the Davis Phinney Foundation sponsors programs that provide the information, tools and inspiration that can be used to live well with Parkinson’s today.  Our initiatives, including The Victory Summit® symposia series, the Every Victory Counts® manual for living well, benefit Parkinson’s patients, their families and caregivers throughout the United States. Each year, we fund innovative research aimed at identifying factors, including exercise and other behaviors, that have a measurable, positive impact on quality of life.

Inspiration for Parkinson’s Awareness Month
becourageous_LWC How will you make a difference during Parkinson's Awareness Month? We challenge you to start by looking inside yourself. This month, we've got a special video presentation, featuring Davis Phinney. Davis' story is unique - just as the stories of every person living with Parkinson's are unique. Yet, we are more similar than we are different. We face the same challenges, we share the same hopes and fears. We are all part of the Tribe. So, how will you define victory? WATCH THE VIDEO
