SRUK First Annual Conference

Date: Mon 5th September 2016

Our first ever Annual Conference was held in August 2016 and was a great success. It brought together key industry leaders and medical professionals to present on the latest research, methods of diagnosis, treatments and managing the condition. Our President Dame Carol Black, and Vice Presidents Professors Chris Denton and Ariane Herrick attended and led the opening and closing speeches. There was also a well attended networking reception on the evening before for those that had travelled down before the event.

Over 130 supporters attended and it was an ideal opportunity for returning attendees to meet up again and share experiences, and for new people to be introduced to each other and make friends.

"A really good day - thank you so much. Excellent presentations, lots of discussion and information to digest and share." - Sarah

"An excellent, enjoyable and inspirational conference! Presentations were so very useful and the organisation was really good. Well done SRUK!" - Edith
