INSIGHT Summit 2019
Parkinson’s New Zealand is proud to be partnering with PD Warrior, Parkinson's UK, the EPDA, Parkinson's Australia, Shake It Up Australia Foundation and other Parkinson's organisations, to bring you the INSIGHT Summit 2019. The Summit will start on World Parkinson’s Day, 11 April 2019 and run for three days.
The INSIGHT summit is the largest global online event for the Parkinson’s community, bringing you together with experts, academics, specialists, clinicians and other people living with Parkinson’s. This online event is a new way to gather insight and be part of the voice for change, collaboration and cure.
What is the INSIGHT Summit?
The INSIGHT summit is an online conference with over 50 high profile speakers presenting on Parkinson’s. There will be talks on the latest research, speeches from people living with Parkinson’s and updates on what technology can do for people with Parkinson’s. While the summit only runs for three days, there will be ticketing options for those that want to continue to access the presentations for up to a month afterwards.
The INSIGHT Summit is the largest online event for Parkinson’s. This means that you, along with thousands of others globally, will be logging on to attend the Summit. If you are watching talks live, you will be able to ask the speakers questions and chat with other participants. If watching after the talks have concluded, you will still be able to see the conversations that took place during the talks.
Who Should Attend?
There is something for everyone at the INSIGHT Summit, whether you are living with Parkinson’s, a carer or family member, an allied health professional, researcher, student or other health professional wanting to know more about Parkinson’s.

Parkinson’s New Zealand is developing the outlines for two exciting new projects that will be funded from the proceeds of the INSIGHT Summit.
The first is a course for the newly diagnosed. People living with Parkinson’s need information about their condition, symptoms and treatment options. Knowing where and how to access services and support is vital for people to make effective and informed decisions about their health. This course will provide newly diagnosed members with timely, high quality information to make well informed choices for themselves.
The other project is a self-management programme. This self-management programme is designed to help people with Parkinson’s gain confidence in their ability to control how Parkinson’s affects their lives. This programme will be facilitated by specially trained volunteers over a six-week period where topics such as connection, relationships, figuring out what is important in life, care of self and planning for the future are covered.
