Event description

Description

The first learning disabilities nurses were registered 100 years ago this year. To celebrate this, LSBU are holding an event to celebrate the profession, and take it back to its roots - the health and well being of people with learning disabilities. The event will be hosted and faciltated by people with learning disabilities, and will discuss the things that they believe are important for their health and their future, with the continued support of learning disabilities nurses.
