4th World Parkinson Congress

WPC Podcast

In preparation for the 4th World Parkinson Congress in Portland in 2016, two highly experienced journalists (who are also living with Parkinson’s) survey the landscape of Parkinson’s disease research and treatment by interviewing neuroscientists, neurologists, and people with Parkinson’s (PwP). These FREE series of 15 thirty-minute podcasts will not only address common questions asked by PwP, but will also serve as a primer on the biomedical research currently underway.

The aim of this unique Portland Countdown podcast program is to not only educate the community, but to highlight the triennial World Parkinson Congress (WPC). Each WPC opens its doors to everyone in the Parkinson’s community, including people living with Parkinson’s and their care partners.
