XXII World Congress on Parkinson’s Disease and Related Disorders

On behalf of the Board of the International Association of Parkinsonism and Related Disorders, it is our pleasure to invite all of you to join us during the upcoming biennial XXII World Congress on Parkinson’s Disease and Related Disorders, November 12-15, 2017 in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam!

The motto of this Congress is “Two Centuries of Movement Disorders: Transformation of Clinical Care”. True to the overarching mission of our organization, we strive to create a milieu for the free exchange of knowledge, to bridge the divide between basic science and clinical care, and to forge the future by coalescing an understanding of the etiology and pathophysiology with treatment of the manifold motor and behavioral features of these disorders. It is our hope that this Congress facilitates the global sharing of therapeutic strategies to enhance the quality of life of patients’ worldwide suffering from movement disorders. This Congress aspires to reach this goal by bringing together a diverse, equi-gender, international faculty of dynamic scientists, seasoned clinicians, and dedicated allied health experts.

The Congress will include thought provoking plenary lectures, cutting edge scientific symposia, interactive forum discussions and practical workshops. Equally important, it will offer numerous slots for oral presentations of ongoing research and ‘hot topics.’
