My PD Journey Summit 2016 will happen at the European Parliament on 18 February from 12:00-15:00. It will mark the exclusive launch of My PD Journey’s second major initiative – a new composite scale measuring motor-neuron and non-motor-neuron symptoms – and will showcase good practice examples taken by My PD Journey coalitions.

The summit will also feature personal accounts of Parkinson’s from patient and carer perspectives, as well as a policy response from the European Commission about what can be done at an EU and national level to address the challenges facing Parkinson’s patients, their families, and European healthcare systems at large.

Led by the EPDA, My PD Journey is a ground-breaking multi-stakeholder project for people with Parkinson’s in Europe. It aims to create an environment that ensures PwPs receive optimal and timely access to appropriate diagnosis, treatment and care.
