The largest Parkinson’s event in Florida is coming to the Bradenton Area in 2019! 

Neuro Challenge Foundation for Parkinson’s is kicking the EXPO off with an after-hours event on October 22 at the Manatee Technical College. Guests are invited to attend to learn more about the day-long event that focuses on living well with Parkinson’s.  “The Parkinson’s EXPO will be held at the Bradenton Area Convention Center next year on April 13 and we’re thrilled to be working with them,” said Robyn Faucy-Washington, executive director of Neuro Challenge. “They are pulling out all the stops to help us create a smoothly run event for the 1,800 plus people we anticipate will be attending.” 

Similar to the 2018 EXPO, the event will feature top Parkinson’s specialists from around the country as well as hands on activities and live demonstrations. The Kick-off will share highlights from last year’s event and talk about new features for this year’s EXPO. One new feature this year will be the availability of continuing medical education credits and continuing education units for physicians and allied health professionals. “There isn’t any other Parkinson’s event like this in Florida,” said Faucy-Washington. “If you have Parkinson’s or have someone in your family with Parkinson’s, we want you to know how empowering this day will be.”
