Event description

Description

This year’s conference is all about our members: sharing success stories and promoting networking and collaboration. After our Annual General Meeting, we will have keynote speakers, workshops and an interactive session.

As always, the conference will be an excellent opportunity to:

  • network with people from other patient organisations;
  • celebrate and learn from the success of our patient groups;
  • tell us how we can improve your experience as a member;

If you are a member of Genetic Alliance UK, the conference will be free to attend, but you do need to register. The conference is also open to non-members, researchers, clinicians and industry representatives. If you are a patient organisation and not yet one of our members, you can are welcome to attend.
