Falls are the leading cause of injury-related deaths in adults over 65, and the most common cause of hospitalization. Thanks to the generosity of the Bob & Renee Parsons Foundation, the quality of life for Parkinson’s patients over 65 will be enhanced. The Foundation donated $1,006,500 to Barrow Neurological Foundation in support of The Bob & Renee Parsons Fall Prevention Center at Muhammad Ali Parkinson Center. The Bob & Renee Parsons Fall Prevention Center is studying falls among the elderly  and developing new fall-prevention methods. This is the second major gift the Bob & Renee Parsons Foundation has made to this innovative new program at Barrow Neurological Institute.
