We return to London for the 2020 Annual Patient Information Day. This free event is open to all those affected by MEN or SDH syndromes, as well as sporadic MTC and ACC.
Expect information sessions relevant to each disease with medical experts, as well as plenty of time for networking with your fellow patients for peer support. As usual, a creche will be available for children under 11 years of age to give parents peace of mind.
