Welcome to my podcast "Jetzt erst recht – Positiv leben mit
Parkinson". My name is Kathrin Wersing, I am 44 years old and I
live in Germany. 4 years ago I was diagnosed with Parkinson’s
myself. One year later I started this podcast which is about
life-affirming positive inspirations from people living with
Parkinson's disease.  II am convinced that - no matter if we
live with Parkinson's or not  - WE are in control of our own
lives and that the way we look into the future has a huge impact
on our own quality of life.

A few weeks ago in July, I visited the World Parkinson's Congress
in Barcelona. Those 4 days in Barcelona were not only hot in
terms of temperature, but also hot in terms of topics. But what
was most important for me during these days: to absorb the spirit
of this event. There were so many interesting, committed and
absolutely impressive people related to Parkinson's gathered in
one place, as I have never experienced before. More than 2600
people from 73 countries, including over 900 doctors and
therapists, 450 people from the caring and therapeutic
professions, 685 people with Parkinson's and 260 relatives.

During those days in Barcelona, I had many conversations, I took
a lot of photos and audio recordings. Finally, I was faced with
the overwhelming task of how to pack all this into just ONE
podcast episode. So I decided to publish several short episodes
with people and topics that touched ME the most at this World
Parkinson's Congress. Today I’ll start with an interview with a
unique man whom I had the pleasure of meeting again at the World
Parkinson's Congress: Nenad Bach is not only a wonderful musician
and composer but also the founder of the worldwide movement
PingPongParkinson, which has spread like wildfire from NewYork
all over the world since 2017. The idea of PingPongParkinson is
quite simple: People with Parkinson's play table tennis together
in regional sports clubs in their hometown. The sport helps those
affected to stay active in social life and to delay the
progression of the Parkinson‘s. I experienced it myself:
PingPongParkinson helps a lot of people to improve their quality
of life. Nenad Bach is a man of many talents - but above all he
is a visionary and an inspiring peace activist. In this
interview, he tells us what keeps him moving regarding
PingPongParkinson and what table tennis and peace have in common.
