Event description

Description

The MSA Trust is pleased to announce a study day for Health and Care professionals. Our programme will look at what MSA is and what it's like to live with, 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.

The cost is £20.00 which includes a delegate pack and certificate of attendance, 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. Our provisional programme can be viewed below.
