Grassroots effort grows into $10-million Parkinson’s Center

The Movers and Shakers began as a breakfast group of friends touched by Parkinson’s disease. They’ve grown into a grassroots movement that culminated last week in the opening of a $10-million comprehensive center for the research and treatment of the disease.
