DENVER - Did you know the total for people with Parkinson's disease in Colorado has not been updated since 2017?

In the above video, you can hear about their mission to convince lawmakers to have Colorado join a new, federally-funded registry for people with Parkinson's disease. So far, Sen. Chris Kolker, D-Arapahoe, has voiced his support.
