Parkinson Society British Columbia provides vital support to the Parkinson’s community through educational programs, advocacy, public awareness and community outreach. The Society receives no government funding and relies entirely on the generosity of individual donors, members, corporations, foundations and the dedicated efforts of volunteers.



Moving Forward, Together will foster an educational and inspirational space for enriching the connection between people with Parkinson's, carepartners, friends, and healthcare professionals. The return of this much-anticipated event will feature prominent local, national, and international presenters who will speak to topics related to the treatment and management of Parkinson’s and its associated challenges. The conference will include two morning plenaries and eight afternoon breakout sessions, which aim to offer a diversified itinerary for all attendees, from researchers to individuals who are at different journey points of Parkinson's.
