Whenever I do research or interview someone I repeat the mantra “Go in dumb; come out smart.”
In essence, “Go in dumb; come out smart” is a constant reminder to really listen by putting aside our perceptions and what we think we know. This will be my experience while I attend the World Parkinson’s Congress (WPC) in Montreal this week.
The one thing I do know going into the WPC is that I don’t know much. The wealth of knowledge and information being gathered together over these four days will be incredible and I know I will come out smarter than I went in.
I will be blogging at the end of each day of the World Parkinson’s Congress (Oct. 1-4) and sharing something new that makes me smarter about Parkinson’s and being a caregiver. What would you like me to keep my ears and eyes open for?
