PMR and GCA Research Hits the Road!

Ever wondered what research is going on in the world of PMR and GCA? Your UK national charity, PMRGCAuk is bringing patients, public and researchers together in an exciting series of free research roadshows around the country in 2017. The first ones will be:

Southend 15 February - Prof Dasgupta and his team

Bristol 7 March - Dr Jo Robson, Prof Kirwan and team

Birmingham 9 March - Dr Sue Mollan and team

Keele 23 March - Prof Christian Mallen and team

Leeds 30 March - Dr Sarah Mackie and team

Each roadshow will be focusing on research being carried out in the local university and teaching hospital, but will also look at the wider picture. And each roadshow will have a special theme. This is really a fantastic opportunity for patients and researchers to learn from each other! You can find more information and reserve your place on this link bit.ly/pmrgcaeventbrite.

The roadshows project is supported by the Wellcome Foundation.

What a shame you're not visiting a 'high elderly population' like Eastbourne. After all these afflictions are most common among them, aren't they?

Let's hope a bit more is added to the jigsaw of these horrible conditions though, wherever the venue.

.... and Norfolk.

Any chance of a summary of all going on the website. Even if you go to one of the days it focuses on the local picture.

Hi Granny-b. We have a videographer working on the material we are collecting as we go around and we have lots of ideas about what to do with it. Eventually it will all be available in a free online course.

Thanks Kate. I thought you would have something in the pipeline.

Hi Mega - we are starting off visiting areas where research is taking place. After that later in the year we will have another series going to major rheumatology centres.

Thank you for your reply and info Kate. 6 years and counting and I'm beginning to get disheartened! I don't expect another reply though.
