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 2022 (WPC), and a global hackathon in 2023, 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, but we need 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 are a startup or other tech company with a solution to share, please fill out our survey.

If you want to volunteer, donate, or otherwise get involved, please complete this form.

And of course, follow us on YouTube and Twitter, or just send us an old-fashioned email at parkython@gmail.com
