2017 Annual Patient Information Day
Our programme for the 2017 AMEND Annual Patient Information Day was expanded for the first time to include two other endocrine diseases, SDHx disorders (phaeochromocytoma and paraganglioma syndromes) and adrenocortical cancer (ACC), who joined the MEN family for a day of education and friendship. As usual, a creche was available to allow parents of young children to relax, learn and network with others without having to worry about arranging childcare at home.
2018 AMEND Patient Information Day
Bookings have now closed for the AMEND Patient Information Day 2018, which will be held in central London on Saturday May 12. If you would like to be added to the waiting list, please contact Helen in the office.
New Publication on Family Planning
AMEND is pleased to bring you our latest publication: 'Starting a Family: Your Choices'. Funded by a grant from the Society for Endocrinology, this publication aims to provide an introduction to the different conception options available to someone with MEN, and some of the practical, physical and emotional aspects of each of these. We also signpost you to sources of additional information, support and advice. Download for free or order a free hard copy if you are a registered patient member of AMEND.
