We are proud to announce that Annabelle’s Challenge and The Ehlers-Danlos Support UK will be jointly hosting the first ever UK Vascular EDS Conference on Saturday 6th and Sunday 7th May 2017 at the Village Hotel Manchester Bury. We are delighted to say that speakers and content is being provided by the EDS Diagnostic Services for complex cases in Sheffield, ensuring the highest possible standard and most up-to-date information on vascular EDS.
The aim of the conference is to provide medical professionals and patients the most up to date medical information about the treatment and management of vascular EDS. The event will also offer a unique opportunity for patients and families who are touched by vascular EDS to meet others with the condition, to share experiences and hopefully form lasting friendships.
Families will be most welcome at the event and activities for will be provided by The Theatre Dance Studios. They will be providing a variety of sessions including dance, drama, singing, performing arts and arts and crafts. We hope this will allow parents to fully participate in the conference.
Tickets are available free of charge to EDS UK Members, Annabelle’s Challenge Members and selected registered Medical Practitioners. We are able to offer tickets free of charge due to kind Grants from the Foyle Foundation, the Big Lottery Fund funds raised in memory of Louise Webb.
The UK's first ever vascular EDS conference is in loving memory of Jez Freedman 1979 - 2015
