Building on the success of our 2020 series, and having taken your feedback into account, the MDUK Muscles Matter seminars will become a regular feature in MDUK’s calendar. They won’t replace but will run alongside our live events when we can host them again.
You told us you found the seminars helpful and informative, accessible and easy to attend. A good way to bring our community together, at a time when we needed more than ever to do that.
Over the next 12 months, we’ll run two or three seminars a month, focusing on a range of general and condition-specific topics. They’ll include sessions you told us you found the most useful – on research, practical and financial support, and managing your condition. Each seminar will include the popular question and answer sessions again too.
You can find out more about these seminars, and book your place directly on Zoom below.
