The World Parkinson Coalition (WPC) hosts the WPC Virtual Congress from May 17-21, 2021.

The inaugural event, held virtually, offers access to Parkinson’s researchers, clinicians, rehab professionals, and advocates, and will include more than 80 presentations and 20 live Q&A sessions.

The program, designed by the WPC Board of Directors, will offer talks in five unique tracks looking at Parkinson’s disease via the lens of: basic science, clinical science, treatment options, living with Parkinson’s, and comprehensive care. In addition to these tracks, two wellness tracks are offered each day looking at wellness & physical therapy and wellness & speech therapy, explaining not just how to maintain wellness, but why things are done the way they are in order to maximize rehabilitation results, WPC notes in a media release.

“The WPC Virtual Congress will help bring some of the hottest topics around Parkinson’s disease today right to the community. At the core of what the WPC offers is the chance for the community to cross-pollinate and connect in unique ways to further our understanding of Parkinson’s disease.

“The Virtual Congress complements the work WPC has been doing over the last 17 years by continuing to bridge the divide between researchers, clinicians, rehab professionals, and people with Parkinson disease, groups that rarely meet each other, by allowing them to interact and connect online.”

— Elizabeth Pollard, WPC Executive Director
