Want to know more about living with and managing Marfan Syndrome? Would you like to meet other patients and carers and find out about support systems? or do you simply want questions answered? If this is the case, why not come to the half day LIVING WITH MARFAN SYNDROME CONFERENCE on 29th September at the Royal Society of Medicine (RSM) to try and get some answers?
This Conference is free for patients, family members and carers to attend. Medical students and trainee doctors/healthcare professionals can also attend for free.
The aim of the Conference is to update patients and interested parties on Marfan and its management. It will include key lectures on different aspects of Marfan Syndrome and how to manage them from Dr. Anne Child (Medical Director of the Marfan Trust); Prof. John Pepper OBE (Interim Director of Research and Consultant Cardiac Surgeon and Professor in cardiothoracic surgery, National Heart and Lung Institute, Imperial College London) as well as from other expertly trained doctors and nurses. It will also give a direct voice to patients and carers to share their concerns on the impact of diagnosis, investigation and management of Marfan Syndrome, as well as the opportunity to ask any questions.
