On behalf of the International Parkinson and Movement Disorder Society (MDS), we are pleased to formally invite you to attend the 21st International Congress of Parkinson’s Disease and Movement Disorders in Vancouver, BC, Canada from June 4-8, 2017.
The city of Vancouver is home to a vast multicultural population, endless activities, and amazing scenery. It is definitely a city which takes full advantage of its great location, bordered by the Pacific Ocean and the Coastal mountain range, giving the city an amazing backdrop no matter where you look.
Each year, the International Congress attracts delegates from around the world who come to learn about the latest research and perspectives, to listen to world renowned speakers, and to be exposed to the most up-to-date information in the field of Movement Disorders.
We look forward to welcoming you to Vancouver and hope you will take advantage of the many exciting educational opportunities the 2017 International Congress offers.
With kind regards,
A. Jon Stoessl
