Dear friends:

On behalf of the World Parkinson Coalition® Steering Committee, Program Committee, staff and the many other Committee members and dedicated volunteers who are working on the 4th World Parkinson Congress, we invite you to join us in Portland, Oregon for four days of learning about Parkinson’s and to be a part of the WPC 2016 Legacy.

The program offers some of the most exciting talks on cutting edge basic and clinical research taking place in 2016. The program will highlight new models of care and collaborations that are changing the lives of those living with Parkinson’s today. The committee members who designed the program, under the leadership of our colleagues, Dr. Marie-Francoise Chesselet, Dr. Peter LeWitt, and Dr. Peter Fletcher, have great knowledge of Parkinson’s, strong connections to their local communities, and understand advocacy efforts on matters that mean the most to people living with Parkinson’s. In other words, they designed a program for YOU.

If you are researching Parkinson’s or living with Parkinson’s, please consider attending this meeting. Starting with the pre-congress courses on September 20, 2016 all the way through the three main days of the program, and the closing remarks on September 23, 2016, you will find a session that interests you. Sessions will include high-level science, moderate science, and Crosstalk presentations targeting a mixed audience. Some sessions will be in large ballrooms, others in smaller rooms for more intimate talks and even smaller yet, you’ll find the return of our popular Roundtable talks with just 12 people sharing and learning about specific topics with an expert.

Join us, and be updated on the most important aspects of Parkinson’s care and research in a unique forum, which brings together the entire Parkinson’s community. We encourage anyone studying or researching Parkinson and those living with the disease, to meet us at the WPC 2016.

See you in Portland, Oregon on Tuesday, September 20, 2016!

Kindest regards,

Serge Przedborski, M.D., Ph.D.
