World Parkinson Congress (WPC) is only 16 months away. Plan to be there. If ever you were going to attend WPC, this is the time to go because it’s happening right here in Canada. You can’t get more accessible than that. Also, Montreal is a fabulous city for a conference with so much to do in its wonderful cosmopolitan atmosphere.
Hundreds of volunteers are already busy at work. There are Canadian reps on most, if not all, of the WPC international committees. The local organizing committee in Montreal is planning many exciting events.
Our WPC ambassadors: Ryan Tripp (Central & Northern Ontario); Yvon Trepanier (Southwest Ontario); and Bob Kuhn (BC) have been spreading the word about the experience of Congress not just in Canada but all over the world. In fact, Bob Kuhn made a round-the-world trip to generate enthusiasm and to meet with as many Parkinson’s organizations as possible on his travels.
The excitement is starting to build. The hotels have been selected. The program will be finalized shortly, with one day devoted to basic science, one day to clinical science and a day to comprehensive care. There will also be a pre-conference policy day for government officials and policy makers.
Come hear the fabulous keynote speakers, get answers from the experts and meet people from around the world who are touched by Parkinson’s.
