Your chance to influence preventive research!


Avid readers of the blog will have heard us talk about MS prevention, and the new(ish) Preventive Neurology Unit that Prof G has helped to set up to study this. We are really keen that people affected by MS are able to tell us the kind of questions that they would like us to work towards answering. I have been tasked with looking at the causes and  exploring the possibilities for preventing MS – this is a huge area, and so you have a real opportunity to influence what I ultimately focus on.

The Preventive Neurology Unit are hosting an afternoon of informal conversations on the 30th April with people who have a particular interest in MS, Parkinson’s disease and dementia. This is not only for people with these conditions – we are also interested in hearing from people with a personal connection to these diseases. We’re also interested in finding out your views on preventive medical strategies in general.

If you are interested in taking part in this afternoon then please register here:

There’ll be a short introduction to the Unit, followed by group conversations for each different disease, finishing with a general discussion for everyone. The whole event should last around an hour and a half, and we’ll be providing tea and coffee.

2pm: Introductions

2.15pm: Disease-specific discussions. Please let us know when you register which group you’d like to join.
