International experts meet in Southend for three-day event to tackle debilitating conditions

Giant Cell Arteritis (GCA), a condition in which the arteries become inflamed, causes problems ranging from headaches, joint pain and fever to cardiovascular disease and even blindness. It almost exclusively affects the over-50s and will be the main point of discussion at the three-day Southend International Symposium, being organised by Anglia Ruskin University in collaboration with Southend University Hospital NHS Foundation

  • Will be interesting to read any articles available on the Symposium

  • Oh "MOST DEFINITELY" !! :-)

  • I was invited by Prof D to take part in the Ultrascan workshop. I agreed but he didn't get back to me with details. They obviously have plenty of GCA cases in the area.
