“Right now, advancements in movement disorders are accelerating, inspiring hope for patients around the globe,” said Francisco Cardoso, MDS President. “The International Congress drives these advancements forward by bringing people together from across the field. It also helps us raise awareness about these conditions that are usually quite difficult to identify and manage — and the growing number of discoveries that may be able to change that.”
