PD Active was founded in 2006 by a small group of men and women with Parkinson's disease (PD). We have grown tremendously and now serve a vibrant community of over 1,000 people affected by PD, and offer over 70 programs per month. Exercise and social programs, like the ones supported by PD Active, are scientifically shown to be essential for people with PD. PD Active is financially sound, supported by donations and grants and an active group of volunteers. PD Active has a working and engaged Board of Directors and two part-time staff. PD Active has a small office in Berkeley, CA.
The Program Director will provide critical operational and strategic support and thought leadership. PD Active's reputation and services have expanded greatly in the last few years and the Program Director will work to continue that growth, coupled with a compassionate understanding and a desire to help our members. The Program Director reports to the Executive Committee of the Board of Directors.
