Virtual Annual Conference 2022 - Ataxia UK
VIRTUAL ANNUAL CONFERENCE – Friday 7th & Saturday 8th October 2022

What a turnout, what a conference! Thank you to everyone that made the 2022 Virtual Conference possible. 

With almost 150 people in attendence and fantastic feedback, this was the best Virtual Ataxia Conference to date. Some of the highlights included the Mindfulness class by Jen Wood, the inspiration section with Scott Armitt’s video & the truly inspiring interview with Dan Stott & Lucas.

We really hope you enjoyed it as much as we did, and we hope that next year, we can welcome you to our first-ever hybrid Ataxia conference. We are already working hard behind the scenes to make it happen!

“I thought the Conference was excellent in both its design, presentation and contents.” 

“I loved this conference. It always reminds me why we do what we do. The people and our community come together as one. That’s why the conference is always so wonderful.”

“It was a great conference. The tech worked well. The hosts were brilliant, and it was great to see the community.” 

“The feeling I’m not alone in this fight.”

“I’m not alone in feeling alone.”

“My first conference. I feel more like a member of the community now.”

“The magic is never lost at a virtual conference which is incredible.”

“It was so nice to know that there are others who have the same problems. Even after 22 years since my diagnosis, I find there is always something new to learn through the conference.”
