The 2016 PAN Forum will take place February 29-March 2 at the Washington Plaza Hotel, 10 Thomas Circle NW, Washington, DC.
What is the PAN Forum?
The PAN Forum is a three-day conference held in Washington, DC, bringing together Parkinson’s disease advocates from across the nation. Attendees gather to learn the latest in Parkinson’s public policy and research and meet with the Members of Congress. Working together, Forum attendees increase awareness of Parkinson’s and learn to advocate for better treatments and a cure.

What Past Attendees Have Said
“It was life changing.” – Lisa Ikeda Bain, Idaho State Director
“It was unbelievable. I have never been in a room of 300 people who had Parkinson’s. [The attendees included] people of all skill levels.” – David Higgins, California Assistant State Director
“It’s such a rewarding experience. By advocating, I feel like I’m getting more control and learning what’s going on. It’s exciting to be part of that and be aware.” – Myra Hirschhorn, NJ State Director
“I’m a social being and I get inspired by the energy that is generated when advocates come together. That’s one of the reasons I really like the PAN Forum in Washington, DC – the energy is like nothing else I’ve ever experienced!” – Robin Katsaros, California Assistant State Director
“We need you and your voice. Stand up and be heard and fight for your cause. If you don’t, who will? You will never know how fulfilling and empowering it is to be a part of PAN until you have attended a Forum.” – Michelle Lane, Louisiana State Director
