Welcome to Nice

Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the International Parkinson and Movement Disorder Society (MDS), we are pleased to invite you to the International Congress of Parkinson’s Disease and Movement Disorders® in Nice, France from September 22-26, 2019.

Nice is a charming, picturesque city nestled on the southeastern coast of France at the foot of the Alps and extending along the Mediterranean Sea.

In addition to the draw of the dynamic landscape, including the Promenade des Anglais situated beside marine reserves and breathtaking ocean view, Nice is recognized for its distinctive architecture and history, with an abundance of historical museums, art galleries, castles, and palaces. The territory is also home to several major research centers and global scientific laboratories, making it the idyllic location for the International Congress of Parkinson's Disease and Movement Disorders®.

We look forward to gathering as a community of clinicians, scientists, and healthcare professionals to learn about the latest advancements and research in the field of Movement Disorders. We expect inspiring discussions, invaluable networking opportunities, and an unforgettable experience.

With kind regards,
