5th Mediterranean School on Movement Disorders
Rome, 5th - 6th April 2019
The 5th Mediterranean School on Movement Disorders will take place in Rome on April 5 and 6, 2019.
The conference will bring together international experts of neurodegenerative diseases coming from the academic world and hospital centres.
Similar to the last year's meeting and based on the very positive feed-back received, interactive sessions will be one of the highlights of this year's meeting, with live patients and video case presentations on all aspects of movement disorders.
In addition, presentations on not-so-often covered, but cumbersome non-motor symptoms in Parkinson's disease such as gastro-intestinal and cardio-vascular problems will be included along with presentations on the role of physiotherapy and an update on risk factors for Parkinson's disease.

Rome, Caput Mundi during the Roman Empire, capital of Italy since 1870, home of the Catholic Church and the Italian government, is placed on the banks of the Tiber, there where the river, running weakly among the seven hills, creates vast meanders which originate little plains.
With its 2,872,776 inhabitants, Rome is today the biggest and most populous city of Italy.
Located in the middle of the Italian peninsula, the city is easily accessible from most important places both in Italy and abroad. Fiumicino airport (also called Leonardo da Vinci), 26-km south-west of Rome, is the airport for both international and domestic air services.
Rome is the most popular site in Italy for visitors, the 3rd most visited city in Europe and the 11th most visited city in the world.
The historic centre of Rome is a Unesco World Heritage Site and around 4 million visitors a year flock to the Italian capital to experience some of the most historic and cultural sites in the world, including: the Colosseum, the Roman Forum, the Pantheon, the Castel Sant' Angelo, St Peter's Square and Saint Peter's Basilica in the Vatican, the Trevi Fountain, the Spanish Square, the Altar of the Fatherland and the Fountain of Four Rivers created by Bernini.
Rome is truly one of the great cities of the world. Rich in history, beauty and culture, it has been an inspiration to countless generations of visitors.
Even now, after nearly three thousand years, its appeal and charm are as strong as ever.
