ASUK Trustee, Alex Griffiths-Rayson and Chief Executive, Ann Chivers set-off on the 30th April 2019 to attend the Alstrom Syndrome International conference in Texas, USA. The event was spread over 5 days from the 2nd – 6th May 2019 and included family and professional seminars and workshops, as well as lots of fun!!
It was a great opportunity for people affected from all over the world to come together and share their experiences and meet other people affected by this ultra rare condition.
We were very excited to be taking part, presenting the journey of ASUK and how we can work together to continue the great work going on globally through support, awareness and research.
Ann and Alex enjoyed catching up with families, friends and professionals – who all had one thing in mind; improving the lives of people affected by Alstrom Syndrome.

‘A huge thank you to all of you who whole heartedly threw yourselves into the challenge when I asked ‘What are your key learning points from the conference?
In pictures and words- you had to be there to get that joke-here are the results from your creativity and resourcefulness! I hope you enjoyed it as much as me and the audience! You all deserve a standing ovation!
I look forward to seeing you next time.’
Best for now
