MSA Trust


Health and Care Professionals Study Day

We are pleased to announce our next study day for Health and Care professionals will be held in Newcastle on 11th October 2018. The 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.

Once you’ve registered you will be sent a full programme well ahead of the event.
