Faces of Parkinson’s: Global Reflections of PD


WPC is excited to announce the publication of "Faces of Parkinson's: Global Reflections" a NEW book highlighting individuals living with Parkinson’s, clinicians, care partners, researchers, and advocates from 14 countries.  Photos were taken at the 4th World Parkinson Congress and compiled into a moving book full of stories about tenacity, love, overcoming challenges, triumphs, joys, and fears.

The WPC philosophy is to bring the community together to expedite our understanding of Parkinson's and push for innovative collaborations so we can more quickly create better care options and ultimately find a cure. We believe that the Parkinson's community is stronger when it works together and so we chose to highlight a diverse range of community members who are touched by PD and to showcase how we impact each other and how our efforts are entwined.

This beautiful book would make an excellent addition to any personal library or book shelf. This book can be purchased via the WPC online store.


Individuals with Parkinson’s speak of the profound ways
the disease has impacted their lives.

“I try to use this challenge as a tool for self-growth, as an impetus to stretch my spiritual muscles and to focus on the important things in my life: my family, my community, and the Parkinson’s community.”


Debbie Shapiro, Person with Parkinson's, Israel


Care partners reveal how much heartbreak, love, and patience goes into helping someone they love live with PD.


“The biggest lesson for me in this journey is this: Be empowered by your own abilities to seek a solution.”


Lily Liu, Care Partner, United States


Clinicians, researchers, and advocates share how they became inspired to devote their careers to helping people with Parkinson’s.


“I simply could not sit back and imagine another family going through the same hardships. I needed to educate people on the existence of Parkinson’s disease and change the negative perception of PD in Kenya.”


Hellen Mwithiga, Advocate, Kenya
