World Parkinson Congress announced

World Parkinson Congress announced
22nd December 2009

The World Parkinson Congress will be held in the UK in 2010 and people associated with the disease are being given the chance to get involved.

In its capacity as one of the five leading sponsors of the World Parkinson Congress, the Parkinson's Disease Society (PDS) is hoping to inspire individuals to consider issues much more at only the second congress of its kind.

Held in Glasgow between September 28th and October 1st 2010, the latest scientific discoveries, carers' initiatives and medical practices related to Parkinson's disease will be discussed by the leading authorities in the industry.

The event is open to anyone touched by Parkinson's, with neurologists, health professionals, scientists, people with Parkinson's and carers expected to gather to share knowledge and develop partnerships to identify best practice in order to further the development of a cure for the condition.

This week, the PDS announced that it is looking for people to join Trek Nepal, which it has described as one of the charity's "most exciting fundraising events of 2010".
