Committees

The success of the each World Parkinson Congress is due to the incredible volunteer committee members who help steer the decisions of the Congress, design the program, ensure the voice of people with Parkinson’s is heard throughout the planning process, and more. They start volunteering their time nearly three years before the Congress even opens its doors and we thank them for their service to the WPC and global Parkinson’s community.
