We are pleased to announce details of our Members’ Conference, which takes place in the Hodson Bay Hotel in Athlone, Co. Westmeath, over the weekend of 20th to 22nd October, 2017.
The adults’ programme, we hope, gives a mix of educational and practical interactive sessions for all. On
Saturday, the programme consists of a lecture and interactive workshop on new developments in
haemophilia treatment and a workshop on vein care which we hope will get good attendance. Sunday
morning will start with peer support groups for different cohorts of members, followed by a wellness
workshop for all members, young and old.
