Parkinson Canada is excited to be a part of the World Parkinson’s Congress (WPC), a global event that brings together scientists, healthcare professionals, advocates and people living with Parkinson’s. Our involvement allows us to stay updated on the latest breakthroughs, ongoing research efforts and advancements in care practices. By doing so, we can champion improved treatments, support the development of promising interventions and make significant contributions to the national and global Parkinson’s community.
The WPC attracts renowned experts and passionate individuals worldwide. This year, the WPC will take place in Barcelona, Spain from July 4-7, 2023. It serves as a platform for collaboration, knowledge sharing and meaningful discussions, with the aim of bringing all key Parkinson’s stakeholders together to accelerate the development of new treatments and ways to enhance quality of life for individuals with Parkinson’s.
A Unique Opportunity
As a leading voice, Parkinson Canada actively supports individuals, families, caregivers and communities impacted by Parkinson’s. By attending the WPC, Parkinson Canada aims to:
Empower and Educate
Our team will be attending the diverse educational sessions, workshops and presentations at WPC to report back to our community the latest in cutting-edge research, breakthrough therapies and practical strategies to enhance daily living, self-management, and overall well-being.
Connect and Collaborate
To foster connection and collaboration between experts, researchers, and advocates, Parkinson Canada will be hosting a booth at WPC in partnership with The Davis Phinney Foundation. And on July 5th, Parkinson Canada will hold a Canada Night Event, a unique opportunity for Canadian conference attendees to engage, exchange ideas and build a supportive network of like-minded individuals.
Highlight Canadian Leadership
The Canadian Parkinson’s community is fortunate to have strong leaders in both research and advocacy. Throughout WPC, we’ll be reporting on the key role Canada plays in the international Parkinson’s community and how their work impacts Canadians.
