World Parkinsons Congress 2019

The 5th World Parkinson Congress (WPC) will take place in Kyoto, Japan from June 4 to 7 in 2019.

WPC is specifically designed for people living with Parkinson’s. Past attendees said they met competent and optimistic patients and scientists, made life-long friends, and found the Congress both fun and inspiring.

June next year may seem a long way away, but now is the perfect time to start making plans if you would like to attend.

There will be a limit of 4,000 attendees at the Kyoto Congress. The last WPC in the U.S. attracted 4,500 participants and attendance has been increasing at every Congress since 2006.

Parkinson’s NSW will help you plan by publishing regular updates in our publications Stand by Me and InTouch. The information we share will help you understand the benefits of participating, and how to make the most of your time at WPC and in the host city of Kyoto.

If you are planning to attend the WPC (or indeed taking a long flight anywhere), this video from Professor Simon Lewis might prove useful. Click on the picture to start the video
