The purpose of the WPC 2013 is to create a worldwide dialogue to discuss the multifaceted problems of Parkinson’s disease (PD), propose solutions including new approaches to research, build innovative collaborations and create better treatment options for people with PD. It is the only meeting in the field of PD that addresses a need to bring the whole PD community together for high-level scientific sessions and discussions on current work being done to advance science, improve care for people with PD and help sensitize researchers to the needs of people with PD and conversely help people living with PD understand the challenges researchers and health professionals face in their effort to find a cure and offer better care.
