to Toronto and back again

well, i’m back from Ontario after a wonderful trip! I landed and immediately went to a beautiful wedding (congratulations Jer & Jess Bellamy!). After, I headed to the 15th International Congress for Parkinson’s disease and Movement Disorders.

During the conference I got to take advantage of Toronto’s newest mode of transportation!

I took sessions on genetics, non-motor complications (especially cognitive changes and mood disorders), environmental factors, gait impairment associated with PD… and was able to share my research on frailty in PD (see poster here).

I also got to sneak a few moments with some old friends over dinner, drinks, and delicious freshly-made donuts!

… and it’s always nice to know you can find a bit of peace and community wherever you are!

After the conference headed a bit more east and spent the weekend visiting family, friends and their new additions! It’s always so nice to reconnect with those who are close to you, but don’t see often!

Now I am back in Kelowna and ready for my next adventure! much love.
