Meetings // Myositis UK Gala Dinner, AGM and Conference





Plus: a Gala Dinner on Saturday 23 June to recognise 30 years fighting rare muscle disease


Join us on Sunday 24 June 2018 for Myositis UK‚€ôs AGM and conference at the Oxford Belfry Hotel.

This is a great opportunity to find out more about the work of Myositis UK, learn about ongoing research, and meet others affected by myositis.

We have a full programme for all forms of myositis, following a format that has proved successful in previous years. Speakers are still to be confirmed but the proposed programme can be found here.

Registration opens at 9:30 with the annual general meeting beginning promptly at 10:00. We will then break out into specific disease type groups, before regrouping for the final session that should finish around 16:00.

Lunch is provided along with tea and coffee during both the morning and afternoon sessions.
