The 2016 WPC’s New “Book Nook” Will Bring Readers And Authors Together!
Posted by Karl Robb
I have been fortunate to have attended 2 World Parkinson Congresses, Washington and Montreal. Both events were outstanding in information and learning about what is new in the world of Parkinson’s disease.
If you didn’t already know, registration for the World Parkinson Congress (WPC) is NOW Open! This September an international contingent of scientists, activists, experts, vendors, writers, researchers, medical experts, body workers, and so many others who focus on Parkinson’s disease will convene in Portland, Oregon for this huge event. For my fellow Americans, I encourage you to take advantage of the fact that the #WPC2016 is in the US, once again and in the great city of Portland. The WPC only happens every 3 years! This is a wonderful opportunity to learn what is happening around the globe and meet many of the world’s leaders in their field. Click here to learn more or to register today!
WPC Book Nook
2016’s WPC will be providing something new this year with their Book Nook! Meet some of the authors behind many of the Parkinson’s books that you have read or plan to read. Some authors may do a reading as well. If you are an author writing about Parkinson’s disease read about the requirements for submitting your application for approval. This is a great opportunity to bring authors and readers together! For more information, click here.
