Welcome Note

Dear all..

It is our pleasure to welcome you to the THIRD SAUDI MOVEMENT DISORDERS CONFERENCE in Jeddah, Jeddah, on 9-10 April 2021.

This follows the success of the first Saudi meeting on Advanced Parkinson’s Disease in Dubai, UAE on 31 March – 01 April 2017, and the second Saudi meeting on Parkinson Disease and Other Movement Disorders in Jeddah, on 12-13 April 2019.

Our meeting this year is a continuation of the previous events, but focusing more on therapies in Parkinson disease and other movement disorders. Our young neurologist colleagues will also have their opportunity with dedicated workshops that review different movement disorders topics. This year’s event offers on site or virtual attendance.

  • On Friday 9 April, morning sessions will cover therapeutic advances in Parkinson disease medical and surgical management. Afternoon sessions are dedicated to other movement disorders therapies, including special situations like pregnancy and fasting.
  • On Saturday 10 April, young neurologists would have dedicated lectures focusing on approach and review of movement disorders.

Before we end the meeting, we will appreciate if all participants will join us for a closing remark to give their feedback about this activity and how we will improve our future gatherings.

Again, we welcome you all and we hope you find the meeting beneficial and enjoyable.
