SUPPORT TRAVEL GRANT FUNDS

Support people with Parkinson's & young investigators to attend the 6th World Parkinson Congress in Barcelona, Spain.
We provide travel grants to People with Parkinson's because they are what makes our congress special. Their insight into what day-to day life with the disease is like inspires researchers and clinician and shapes their future work. People with Parkinson's often discuss how empowering it is to be at an event with hundreds of other people living with the disease. They also describe the tremendous sense of hope they feel seeing all of the research being done surrounding Parkinson's. By donating to the travel grant you are enabling PwP's to attend the congress who otherwise wouldn't be able attend.

We also provide travel grants to young investigators who are working on or interested in working on Parkinson's disease. It is important to continue attract new talent to this area of research. This event provides them with the opportunity to network with leaders in the field and to display their work in the poster walk. By supporting the travel grant program you are also helping to build the next generation of researchers and clinicians.
