MDS Introduces 1st Pan American Parkinson's Disease and Movement Disorders Congress

Dear Colleagues,

The International Parkinson and Movement Disorder Society (MDS) is pleased to introduce the 1st Pan American Parkinson’s Disease and Movement Disorders Congress. The meeting will be held on February 24-26, 2017 in Miami, FL, USA.

As a result of the rapid growth of the MDS Pan American Section (MDS-PAS), there is the need for a forum to discuss relevant issues in our field that are specific to the Pan American Section. This will also be a  tremendous opportunity for MDS-PAS members to interact with colleagues from different parts of Pan America.

We look forward to welcoming you to Miami February 24-26, 2017!

Warmest regards,

Cynthia Comella
Chair
PAS Congress Scientific Program Committee
Francisco Cardoso
Chair
MDS Pan American Section
