WPC 2010 Travel Grants for People with Parkinson’s!
Thanks to the Glasgow City Marketing Bureau, the WPC 2010 now has funds to offer a modest number of travel stipends for people living with Parkinson’s to attend the WPC. While all applicants will be considered, those who have done one or more of the following: submitted a Living with Parkinson’s abstract; a video for the video competition; and/or who are interested in helping to staff the Patient Expert Booth at the WPC, are strongly encouraged to apply for support.
When asked why the GCMB considered supporting the WPC 2010, Molly Doheny, Head of Glasgow Convention Bureau said, “Glasgow City Marketing Bureau has from the very initial discussions with WPC been keen to support such a prestigious and far reaching congress, bringing scientists, physicians, caregivers and people living with Parkinson’s disease together in our city. Glasgow ‘s support exists to help WPC deliver a memorable and successful congress and we look forward to welcoming your delegates to Glasgow in September!”
If you are a member of a European Parkinson’s Disease Association Organization, please consider contacting EPDA about the travel stipends they are offering for EPDA patients and carers at email@example.com
