Making Moves for Parkinson's

WE ARE

The CMC

The Chicago Movement Coalition (CMC) is an alliance of community and academic partners that was established in 2019 to be a resource and advocate for members of the Chicagoland community who are underrepresented in the area of Parkinson’s disease care.  The coalition is made up of CMC leaders who are community leaders and healthcare providers, individuals with Parkinson’s disease, and their caregivers. These CMC Leaders represent the perspectives and priorities of their diverse communities in the North and Southwest sides of Chicago. 

The main goal of the CMC is to empower community members by developing and sustaining educational initiatives about Parkinson’s disease care and research opportunities. The CMC is generously funded by the Michael J. Fox Foundation and the Parkinson’s Foundation​.
