In June 2019 the Edinburgh Branch sent five delegates to the 5th World Parkinson Congress in Kyoto, Japan. On Saturday 16th November at Bellevue Chapel over 50 Branch members spent the day hearing about their experiences, what they discovered at the Congress and how we in the Parkinson’s Community can benefit.
Thanks to everyone who came along and shared their secrets into Living Well With Parkinson’s. If you were not able to attend, or just want to look at the some of the presentations again, you can find links below.
