The mission of the triennial WPC
“To provide an international forum to learn about the latest scientific discoveries, medical practices, caregiver initiatives and advocacy work related to Parkinson’s disease. By bringing physicians, scientists, nurses, rehabilitation specialists, caregivers and people with Parkinson’s disease together, each Congress allows for a worldwide dialogue to help expedite the discovery of a cure and best treatment practices for this devastating disease.”
This year, the World Parkinson’s Congress will take place in Kyoto, Japan, from June 4-7 (2019). This meeting is aimed and open to anyone in the community who is touched by Parkinson’s: researchers, clinicians, nurses, HCPs, family members and PwPs are all welcome to attend this incredible, inclusive Congress.
