Share Your Work at the World Parkinson Congress in Scotland

Have you been involved in fundraising or awareness-raising work for Parkinson’s disease (PD) or have you run a program designed to move the Parkinson’s cause forward?  Your program could be featured as part of the Living with Parkinson’s Exhibit at the 2nd World Parkinson Congress/WPC 2010, which will take place in Glasgow, Scotland from Tuesday, September 28 to Friday, October 1. 

WPC 2010 is inviting submissions from the Parkinson’s community via its website – – from now until Monday, June 7.

The first WPC took place in Washington, DC in 2004 and brought together people from all reaches of the PD community – physicians, scientists, allied health professionals, caregivers and people with Parkinson's disease – for a high-level inspirational meeting on Parkinson’s.  WPC 2010 – supported by 125 organizational partners from 38 countries, including the Parkinson’s Disease Foundation (PDF) – will bring together the community for a second time, offering both educational sessions about Parkinson’s and a scientific poster session highlighting the latest in Parkinson's research.

In addition, WPC 2010 will include a new feature, entitled the Living with Parkinson’s Poster Exhibit. It will include posters detailing the efforts of people living with Parkinson’s disease, care partners and voluntary organizations from around the world to further the Parkinson’s cause.   The category is open to non-scientists who are running local, regional, national and even international programs and projects.

If you have run a program designed to empower your community, or have been involved in awareness-raising or fundraising work for Parkinson’s disease, your activity could be displayed on a poster for all to see.  The only requirement is that the program makes a positive difference to those who are living with PD. 

If your work is accepted, the WPC will ask that you or one person from your organization attend the gathering in order to present it.  Please note that expenses cannot be covered by the WPC.

Submit online at by Monday, June 7, 2010. To register, or to inquire about help with your poster, visit or call (800) 457-6676.
