Keep Moving workshops on the World Parkinson Congress in Kyoto | June 2019

In June, the World Parkinson Congress 2019 took place in Kyoto. 2500 participants had the choice between lectures, World Cafes, workshops and dissemination rounds. Mirko Lorenz, founder of Keep Moving, supported the congress with workshops on his Taiji therapeutic training and presented his program to numerous interested parties from many nations. You can find some impressions here in our gallery.

Last weekend our 4th symposium started in the St. Joseph-Klinikum Berlin – Weissensee. Despite very summery temperatures, this event was again a magnet for those affected and relatives from all over Germany. Organized by Holger Metzing, Jochen Dreissig and Mirko Lorenz, cooperation, networking and sharing again took center stage. My thanks go to the AOK for the special support as well as the speakers and many volunteers. Also a big thank you to the presenter Susanne Schöne, for the professional presentation.

This was the second time Parkinson patients and their families met at the St. Joseph Hospital for one day of learning more, networking and sharing experiences. All talks and discussions were moderated by Stephan Pregizer. The symposium was organized by JuP Berlin, Keep Moving and the German Parkinson Society. We all look forward to “Verwackelt in Berlin 3”, next year on 15 June 2019.

In March 2018 Keep Moving founder Mirko Lorenz visited Shanghai, China, accepting an invitation by Professor Don Zhu of the Sports University and Dr Wu of the Huashan Clinic to learn more about how movement therapy may be used to help Parkinson patients. This led to many interesting talks, new insights and fascinating ideas for future activities.

This meeting of Parkinson experts was organized by the “Jung und Parkinson” association Berlin, by Mirko Lorenz of Keep Moving and by Prof. Dr. Müller of the St. Joseph Hospital at Berlin-Weißensee, who also acted as host. The symposium offered a variety of expert talks by physicians of the Charité, the Parkinson Clinic Beelitz-Heilstätten and the St. Joseph Hospital as well as trial sessions in physiotherapy and Keep Moving, a delicious buffet and a Q&A session on all issues related to Parkinson. Special thanks are due to Dr. Gesine Lösch (Die Linke) for supporting the symposium’s organizers and for acting as our patron. We would also like to thank our sponsors AOK-Nordost, Bahn-BKK and abbvie.

“Diagnosed with Parkinson – Life Goes on” was the motto of an info session organized by the German Parkinson Society DPV and presented at the Sterncenter Potsdam on 20 May 2017 by RBB anchorman Attila Weidemann. This session offered a many-facetted program of expert talks, discussions and join-in movement workshops – a great event spotlighting Parkinson’s disease in a positive way. Supported by Keep Moving.
