Webinar with Prof Dasgupta on immune response to Covid-19

We are very pleased to announce another webinar for our members, this one on the subject of Covid-19: an immune response gone wrong.

Professor Dasgupta will outline the body’s response to Covid-19, how the coronavirus evades detection by the sentinels of the immune system, how the later, frustrated, disproportionate response to the virus can sometimes overwhelm the patient, how anti-inflammatory, repurposed rheumatology drugs are trying to win the fight and how the miraculous, fast track vaccines' development and roll-out are ushering in a new dawn.

Professor Dasgupta is a leading consultant rheumatologist in the field of PMR and GCA and is president of PMRGCAuk.

To register your interest for the talk, please email webinar@pmrgca.org.uk and quote your membership number. If you're not a member and would like to join there is still time - here's the link pmrgca.org.uk/how-to-help/b...

Yes it will be available for a while for members who miss it for one reason or another. Not sure how long it will be available for at this stage.

Hi yogabonnie, if you are a member of the charity it will be in your membership letter/email. Our forum here on HealthUnlocked is one of the services we provide to any patient with PMR or GCA and it's free but being a member of the forum isn't the same as being a member of the charity.If you are a member of the charity, just message me with your real name and I'll look up your membership number.

Hope that helps.
