C-Path Posters from World Parkinson’s Congress 2016
In September, Critical Path for Parkinson’s (CPP) participated in the World Parkinson’s Congress in Portland, Oregon. This meeting brought together people living with Parkinson’s disease (PD), their care partners, and leading researchers, to learn of current advances in PD research and therapies.
The 2016 conference saw 4,555 registrants from 67 countries: 40% neuroscientists, clinicians, researchers, nurses, and rehab specialists; 28% people with Parkinson’s; 20% care partners/family members; 8% exhibitors; and 4% guests/media/staff. Our CPP posters were well received, and many conference-goers were impressed to learn of the FDA’s interest in listening to patients.
