Our Annual Patient Information Days are large, friendly gatherings of around 100 patients affected by all the rare endocrine conditions that AMEND covers. A variety of talks are given by a range of medical experts, including specialised sessions for each disease. A creche and activities for children are usually provided.
Our event changes annually between venues in central London and elsewhere in the UK.
*All our physical meetings and information events have been cancelled for 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic. Thank you for your understanding.
