A Soft Voice blog name WPC Blogger Partner with World Parkinson Congress 2016!

WPC Official Blogger PartnerI am so honored to have been chosen as a WPC blogger partner for the World Parkinson Congress (WPC) 2016 in Portland! If you haven’t been to a WPC event, I whole-heartedly encourage you to join us. Meet amazing people living with Parkinson’s disease, learn about the research and important work being done around the world. Held every 3 years, the Congress returns to the United States’ host city of Portland, Oregon for the 4th gathering on September 20 -23, 2016.

From WPC – “WPC Inc. has expanded its partnership program to the global community of bloggers in the Parkinson’s space.  If you are interested in our WPC Blogger Partner program, email us at info@worldpdcoalition.org.”

Having attended the Congresses in Washington, DC and Montreal, I can tell you the event is packed with information, inspiration, and an array of wonderful international presenters. Hear the most recent research on Parkinson’s and experience the multitude of therapies being used by people affected by the illness. Make new friends, learn about what’s happening in Parkinson’s, and explore a southwestern gem of a city. Watch for my posts and tweets about WPC announcements. I hope to see you there!
