Travel Assistance Award available for a PQI Member to attend Kyoto Conference
Parkinson’s Queensland Inc. (PQI) believes in the importance of supporting those who are living with Parkinson’s and is aware that many members, carers, families and supporters travel to the triennial World Parkinson’s Congresses to gain information and support from some of the world’s leading experts on Parkinson’s. That is a key reason why PQI has introduced its Conference Travel Support program reinforcing the importance of the role of PQI Members within the Parkinson’s community.
At its August meeting, PQI’s Management Committee agreed to provide support of up to $5,000 (maximum – including taxes) conference / travel support to assist in enabling ONE FINANCIAL MEMBER of PQI from within Queensland to attend the 5th World Parkinson Congress in Kyoto, Japan from 4-7 June 2019.
WPC 2019 will unite the global Parkinson community for a high-level, scientific, and educational program. Organized into four days of pre-congress courses, plenary sessions, workshops, and discussions, WPC 2019 will explore the most recent and cutting edge basic science and clinical research as well as advances in treatments designed to improve care and quality of life for people living with Parkinson’s disease. Delegates are from more than 60 countries representing neuroscientists, movement disorder specialists, geriatricians, clinicians, nurses, rehabilitation specialists, people with Parkinson’s, care partners, policy makers and others.
The triennial World Parkinson Congresses provide unique opportunities for the Parkinson’s community to learn about the latest developments in the field of Parkinson’s disease and to meet some of the world’s leaders across the Parkinson’s space from researchers, clinicians, and patient advocates.
Financial Members of PQI are encouraged to apply for this WPC 2019 Conference Travel Assistance Award.
