Event description

Description

The MSA Trust is pleased to announce our first study day for Health and Care professionals. The programme will look at what MSA is and what it's like to live with MSA, what research is being undertaken and the practical ways that Health and Care professionals can best support people living with the condition. It aims to be an interesting day with plenty of discussion and opportunities for networking, with an excellent panel of presenters.

You will be sent a full programme a couple of weeks before the event. The cost of £20.00 includes a delegate pack, a two-course lunch and refreshments throughout the day. If you don't think you can afford to pay this charge please do contact us to discuss alternative options.

We would be grateful if you could let us know about any special dietary requirements, or any other needs, two weeks before the event so that we can make provision for you.

If you have any questions at all please contact support@msatrust.org.uk or call 0333 323 4591.
