On Saturday 6th May in Central Manchester, we held our 2017 Annual Patient Information Day.
All those affected by multiple endocrine neoplasia (MEN), succinate dehydrogenase syndromes (SDHx) and adrenocortical cancer (ACC) were invited to this popular day-long event to listen to some fascinating talks and participate in some useful workshops. Sessions included those on Transition, Understanding Research Articles, Using Social Media for Support, as well as patient experiences.
The filmed presentations are now available to view on our YouTube Channel (AMEND3). Click here to view the playlist.
We are already taking bookings for our 2018 Information Day on 12th May in London. Click here for more information and to book!
NET Cancer Day will be upon us once again on 10th November.
This year's theme is 'Let's Talk About NETs' and there are plenty of ways to get involved to help raise awareness of the neuroendocrine tumours (NETs) that are involved in multiple endocrine neoplasia (MEN).
