We were up early today and had breakfast with Pertti and a grad student from India. That's one of the brilliant ideas behind the World Parkinson Congress. Doctors, researchers, grad students, therapists and people with Parkinson's and their care-partners are all treated as equals and may attend any program they want to.
We grabbed my stack of books and went to my Poster presentation on how I use humor to educate about Parkinson's. I gave a free copy of my Parkinson's Humor book to everyone who stopped by.

When I was done with my presentation, I wandered through the exhibit hall and ran into James Beck, Ph.D (he's the Chief Scientific Officer at Parkinson's Foundation). James and I have been Tweeting back and forth for years, so it was nice to finally meet in person.

I was tired, so we went back to our room for a quick nap. I'd been looking for Jill Carson for three days and finally found her at the closing ceremony.

I posed for one last photo with Parky Raccoon, the World Parkinson Congress mascot.

PS I finally got my camera shy Wonderful Husband to pose for a photo.
