Physiotherapist of the Year (2019) and founder of INSIGHT 2020 and PD Warrior, Melissa McConaghy saw the need for an event that connected, educated and inspired the Parkinson’s community. Working with people with Parkinson’s for over 18 years, Melissa is passionate about shedding light on the topic of Parkinson’s and creating a global support system through INSIGHT 2020.
“Parkinson’s is the fastest growing brain disorder in the world, and INSIGHT 2020 provides that informational space for experts in the field to share industry insights and their stories while also creating a sense of community for those who are touched by Parkinson’s. We’re thrilled to bring the Insight into PD event back for another year and share more incredible insights and research with the Parkinson’s community,” said Melissa McConaghy.
Combining live panels and a wide variety of sessions on the accessible online platform, people can consume the content from their comfort of their own home, 24 hours a day. With a range of world- renowned speakers, including internationally acclaimed neurologist Dr. David Perlmutter, 2-Time Olympic Athlete Roberto Carcelén, and Dr. Ray Dorsey, INSIGHT 2020 will provide people the opportunity to connect, be educated and inspired on a global scale.
