World Parkinson Congress

Triennial international Parkinson’s research meeting

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.

The build up to the WPC – the clock is counting down!

The 4th June is fast approaching as we prepare for the opening ceremony in Kyoto, Japan. Please keep coming back to this page to see highlights from the World Parkinson Congress.

The 4 day conference will cover all aspects of Parkinson’s. Led by the world’s experts in clinical practice and research, representatives from Parkinson’s charities, PwP and all people touched by Parkinson’s, the conference will present new developments and treatments of Parkinson’s, current and future research, and promising drug treatments on the horizon through a variety of mediums; videos, lectures, discussions, poster presentations and more.
