2022 MSA Study Day
We are pleased to announce details of our 2022 MSA 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 lunch and refreshments throughout the day.
The event is planned to be held on the Thursday 17th of November at Voco St David’s in Cardiff, Havannah St, Cardiff CF10 5SD.
