Successful 2017 edition of the ‘’Living Hope’’ Provincial Congress
The 2017 edition of the Living Hope provincial congress, which was held in Sherbrooke on May 3-5, was a success. Nearly 250 people attended the conferences, workshops and round tables offered during the 3 days of the event. Several members of the scientific community were able to inform people living with the disease and their caregivers about the latest advances in Parkinson’s.
The congress ended with the touching testimony of Anne Mc Isaac, a renowned photographer, who learns how to live day by day with Parkinson’s disease. Participants also attended a panel of people living with the disease and health professionals. The panelists shared their tips and tricks in order to remain active through the disease. This exchange subsequently finished with touching testimonies of people living with the disease in the room.
We would like to thank all participants, speakers and health professionals who traveled to Sherbrooke during this 3rd edition of the Vivre l’Espoir! We will meet you in 2019!
Please note that several presentations will be available on our website in a few weeks.
