Regional PQI Members to attend World Parkinson’s Congress in Kyoto
Each World Parkinson Congress is a highly scientific international forum for the latest scientific discoveries, medical practices, and care initiatives related to Parkinson’s disease. Each Congress brings movement disorder specialists, physicians, neuroscientists, neurologists, nurses, rehabilitation specialists, care partners, family members, people with Parkinson’s, along with government and policy representatives together under one roof, for an engaging dialogue to help expedite the discovery of a cure and identify best treatment practices for this devastating disease.
In 2019, the 5th World Parkinson Congress will be held at the International Conference Center in Kyoto, Japan from 4-7 June 2019.
At its mid-year meeting meeting, PQI’s Management Committee agreed to provide funding for conference / travel support to assist in enabling members of PQI from within Queensland to access an opportunity to attend the 5th World Parkinson Congress in Kyoto, Japan from 4-7 June 2019.

Mrs. Jennifer POTTER, Member and Volunteer from Charters Towers.
Congratulations to both recipients. We know you will represent the Queensland Parkinson’s community well and we will lokk forward to reading your reports on your return.
