About DAPS

How it started

The Dallas Area Parkinson Society (DAPS) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded in 1978 by Clarice Dougherty to help her husband and others confront the daily challenges presented by Parkinson's disease (PD). Thousands of lives have been changed for the better because of Clarice's mission and the dedication of many others who have followed her. 

DAPS is dedicated to improving and impacting the lives of those affected by Parkinson’s disease.
