Conference 2013

Alström Syndrome UK Family Conference 2013

On the 28th April 2013 we held our family and professional conference at the Menzies Strathallan Hotel, Birmingham. Children who attended the conference had a fun filled day out at Drayton Manor theme park, thank you to all the volunteers who kindly gave their time to help on the day.

The conference was a great success and was filled with interesting research talks in the morning and family workshops in the afternoon. Families really appreciate the time together and they really enjoyed the presentation by award winning Liam Mackin who is affected by AS, many families thought his presentation was truly inspirational, well done Liam!

During the conference families attended the ASUK Annual General Meeting. You can find the minutes of this meeting here

Thank you to everyone who joined in the charity auction and tombola, on the night we raised £1,034.00

Whilst the adults are at the conference the children are taken for a fun-filled day out. This year we went to Drayton Manor Theme Park, the weather was glorious and the children had a great time.
