Parkinson Alberta Society receives Dr. Morton Shulman Award

Congratulations to Parkinson Alberta Society for winning the Dr. Morton Shulman Award, one of Parkinson Society Canada’s highest honours. The award was made in recognition of the outstanding achievements of Parkinson Society Alberta and Parkinson Society Southern Alberta which recently amalgamated into one organization to better serve the needs of the 8,000 Albertans with Parkinson’s.

“The transformation to one organization, the newly created Parkinson Alberta Society, has made a significant impact, expanding the capacity to reach all parts of Alberta to support more families, friends, co-workers, colleagues and communities affected by Parkinson’s,” said Parkinson Society Canada President & CEO, Joyce Gordon. “We salute the dedication and commitment of staff and volunteers and we honour and recognize all the volunteers, staff members and stakeholders who had a hand in its creation.”

The presentation occurred at the Parkinson Alberta Society Hope Conference in Calgary on Friday June 3, 2011.

Members of the Parkinson Alberta Society Change Team show off their certificates of recognition.
