World Parkinson’s Congress in a Nutshell
The above video explains what the World Parkinson’s Congress is about. It shows the 2013 WPC in Montreal, Canada.
The 2016 World Parkinson’s Congress in Portland, Oregon (September 2016) was truly an amazing experience. It was wide open to people from all over the world. There were over 4400 people present. We met with doctor’s researchers, fund-raising leaders, therapists, care partners, and many people with Parkinson’s. This was truly a place full of movers and shakers – literally and figuratively:
WOW! Such an amazing conference with people from all over the world, and everyone is so open, respectful, and friendly!
..another take away from the conference:
This year they really focused on Care Partners, and on building a team of care (with doctor’s, therapists, clinicians, and researchers)
all working together with and for the patient.
