Ataxia UK was invited to attend two conferences to talk about ataxia.
The first was a training day on rare diseases in Birmingham aimed at junior doctors and GPs. We are grateful to Dr Rajith de Silva, ataxia specialist neurologist and member of Ataxia UK’s Medical Advisory Panel for attending this event in March and to Ataxia UK Trustee Richard Brown who agreed to give a talk about how ataxia affects him.
The second event was in St Asaph in Wales a Study Day for health and social care professionals from across North Wales and North West England working in the field of movement disorders. Dr John Ealing, another member of Ataxia UK’s Medical Advisory Panel and a Friend of Ataxia UK Martin McCudden, who has ataxia, attended the day and helped raise awareness of the ataxias.
