What is Parkython?

Parkython is a virtual global hackathon for Parkinson's.

Parkython [Par-key-thon] is an initiative to catalyze the development of better technology-based solutions for People with Parkinson’s (PwP).

Through a series of webinars, virtual meetups, salons, a robust presence at the World Parkinson Congress 2023 (WPC), and a global virtual hackathon, Parkython aims to bring members of the global Parkinson’s community together with developers, designers and other creatives to develop solutions for PwP, with PwP.

We are tech geeks who have a selfish desire to leverage technologies to improve our lives and the lives of our friends and loved ones living with Parkinson’s.  But we’re not the only ones.  Many tech entrepreneurs and companies are working on solutions, and many PwPs are looking for solutions, and we are building a better forum for connecting to each other and solving it together.

Please help us move forward by sharing our info with anybody who shares our vision.  If you want to volunteer, donate, or otherwise get involved, please complete this form.

If you are a startup or other tech company with a solution to share, please fill out our survey or just send us an old-fashioned email at

And of course, follow us on YouTube and Twitter
