World Parkinson Congress 2016


A packed schedule of scientific presentations, workshops, plenary sessions, roundtables, discussions and posters, as well as unmatched opportunities to network and socialize with the international Parkinson Community, the World Parkinson Congress 2016 (WPC 2016) is an event you’ll never forget. WPC 2016 will be held in Portland, Oregon from September 20 to 23.

Canada is well represented by a number of speakers, researchers, health professionals and people living with Parkinson’s and their care partners. Parkinson Canada is proud to sponsor the Stanley Fahn Young Investigator Award, to be presented for the first time at WPC 2016. Named after the WPC founder and world renowned Parkinsonologist, the award will be given to one outstanding abstract submitter whose work is deemed cutting edge, novel and shows great promise. The selected person will be invited to be part of the Hot Topics presenters to present their work and will receive an all-expenses-paid participation in WPC 2016.

WPC 2016 participants from Parkinson Canada will also be at booth 508 in the exhibition space. Come by for a visit. For all the details, and to register, visit
