We are delighted to announce that after the huge success of the Vasculitis Patient Symposium in 2015, that we have agreed to arrange another one - which will take place on Saturday 4th March 2017 inManchester, at the Mercure Piccadilly Hotel.
We are also delighted to announce that as part of this years Patient Symposium we will also be holding a separate section to this conference which is dedicated to children. This is a perfect opportunity for children with all types of vasculitis to all come together from around the world and be together in one venue. They will then have the chance to talk about their experiences living with Vasculitis, or with family members who perhaps have Vasculitis based conditions. Not only will they find out more information and learn about different treatments and medications that other people use but it also highlights to the children that they are not alone and there are many other children in world with Vasculitis although not necessary the same strain as themselves. I am delighted to announce that this is now FREE to attend for Children up to the age of 16.
Not only that, but to finish off this great event we are also organising a Vasculitis Charity Ball on the same date, in the evening. This is something that is very close to my heart due to the fact that my own daughter who is now 13 was diagnosed with a form of Vasculitis since the age of 3 and Susan and John Mills from Vasculitis UK helped us so much through the tough years at the worst of her illness.
