Name Change for Movement Disorder Society

Megan Brooks

Sep 12, 2013

The Movement Disorder Society (MDS), the largest international organization representing movement disorders specialists, has changed its name to the International Parkinson and Movement Disorder Society.

"This new name recognizes the growing importance of Parkinson's disease care and research within the field of Movement Disorders and the activities of the Society," Matthew Stern, MD, president of the Society, said in a statement.

The name change became effective September 3, 2013.

"In conjunction with continuing efforts to increase awareness of the Society and Movement Disorders as a neurological subspecialty among the public and other related societies, MDS members voted to change the organization's name at the last general meeting in Sydney, Australia, on June 18th, 2013," the Society said in a statement.

The Society's website — www.movementdisorders.org — will not change, and the MDS logo will remain as the center of the organization's graphic identity, the Society said.

"Though the name has changed, the MDS mission and goals will remain the same, and the Society will continue to work together to disseminate knowledge and promote research in order to favorably affect the care of patients with Parkinson's disease and other movement disorders," the statement adds.
