Multiple System Atrophy Health and Care Professionals Study Day
The MSA Trust is pleased to announce details of our 2019 study day for Health and Care professionals. Our programme will look at what MSA is, what it's like to live with and the practical ways that Health and Care professionals can best support people living with the condition. It aims to be an interesting and engaging day with plenty of discussion and opportunities for networking, with an excellent panel of presenters.
The cost is £25.00 which includes a delegate pack, a certificate of attendance, complementary light breakfast and hot lunch with refreshments throughout the day. Our provisional programme can be viewed below.
