CurePSP to 2013 Attend World Parkinson Congress

TIMONIUM, Maryland, September 19, 2013 - CurePSP will attend the 2013 World Parkinson Congress (WPC) in Montreal, Canada on October 1-4, 2013. The 2013 meeting marks only the third time the World Parkinson Congress has convened.

The WPC will afford medical professionals an incredible opportunity to join forces with the rest of the Parkinson's community - including doctors, researchers, rehabilitation professionals, care partners, and government representatives from around the world. The event is also open to patients and families.

The Congress will feature an extensive program of plenary sessions, symposia, and workshops with presentations and discussions devoted to established and best treatment options, quality of life and care delivery issues, and the latest scientific research from around the world.

The event offers programming and networking opportunities to create greater support for atypical Parkinsonian disorders like progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP), corticobasal degeneration (CBD) and multiple system atrophy (MSA) on a world-wide level.

"We're very excited to have the opportunity to showcase the organization at this international event," said Trish Caruana, Vice President of Programs & Education at CurePSP. "We will be exhibiting and our attendance will increase awareness of PSP, CBD and MSA, create collaborative opportunities with other organizations, and allow us to reach a large audience of people affected by these diseases who have yet to learn about CurePSP."
