Hirschsprung's Disease Conference
Fri 28 July 2017, 09:00 – 16:30 BST
July 2017 will see the return of our 3rd conference. The conferences are unique as we invite not only medical professionals and students but also children and families living with Hirschsprung's Disease. The conference will be taking place at the new Alder Hey run by small registered charity, CHAMPS Appeal.
The conference will include presentations from Consultant Surgeons, Professors, Specialist Nurses and Parents. Covering a variety of topics including surgery, complications, outcomes, research and living with Hirschsprung's Disease from a families prospective.
Mr Simon Kenny - Consultant in Paediatric Surgery and Urology and CHAMPS Appeal Patron
Mr Colin Baillie - Consultant Paediatic Surgeon
Professor David Edgar - Professor of Medical Cell Biology and CHAMPS Appeal Patron
Dr David Wilkinson - Research Registrar
Brenda Hill - Specialist Stoma Care Nurse
Lunch and refreshments will be provided for all.
Children are welcome to all parts of the conference, however we are aware they may get restless during the presentations. Therefore we will provide a break out room where there will be volunteers providing activities for the children.
There will be a small exhibition available during breaks/lunch from like minded organisations.
We look forward to seeing you in July 2017!
