XXII World Congress on Parkinson’s Disease and Related Disorders (IAPRD) 2017 Vietnam

  • Conference Call
  • On behalf of the Board of the Inter­na­tional Asso­ci­a­tion of Parkin­son­ism and Related Dis­or­ders (IAPRD), 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 tak­ing place on Novem­ber 1215, 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.
