The 5th World Parkinson Congress will be held in Kyoto, Japan in 2019!

We are excited to announce that plans are underway for the 5th World Parkinson Congress to be held in Kyoto, Japan from June 4– 7, 2019. More than 3,000 people from 60+ countries are expected to attend the WPC 2019. Delegates will be those who are dedicated to understanding, researching, treating, and curing Parkinson’s disease (PD), including those who are living with it.

The WPC 2019 will continue our tradition of hosting an international, interdisciplinary forum showcasing the most important developments in the world of PD. As medical advances continue to accelerate, the goal of the WPC is to advance an all-encompassing approach to the treatment of Parkinson’s by bringing together the full spectrum of those who serve the Parkinson’s community and those who live with PD. These will include representatives of professional medical and scientific organizations; nurses and rehabilitation professionals; voluntary, lay, and patient services organizations; the pharmaceutical industry; and the research and health services ministries of national governments, and of course people living with PD and their care partners.
