Highlights from the World Parkinson’s Congress 2023.

The World Parkinson’s Congress took place in Barcelona in July 2023.

The Congress brought together physicians, neuroscientists, a broad range of other health professionals, care partners, and people with Parkinson’s for a unique and inspiring experience.

The wide ranging programme included the latest research and developments in Parkinson’s treatments and care, as well as the experiences of people living with Parkinson’s.

Richelle Flanagan from Ireland picked up the WPC Robin Elliott Award for Distinguished Contribution to the Parkinson Community for 2023.
