TAG Family Weekend 2018

The Arthrogryposis Family Weekend 2018
and Annual General Meeting

took place on

Saturday 20 October and Sunday 21 October

at the

Double Tree by Hilton Hotel, Paradise Way, Walsgrave Triangle, COVENTRY, CV2 2ST

 

Because there more and more of us are living longer, this year we had two speakers to talk about AMC in adults, not only relevant to ‘us old uns’ benefit, but for young families too and see there is help around after the ‘cliff edge’ of no longer being in the children’s area of the NHS. This is something TAG is trying to address with the NHS.

other speakers included:

  • a very experienced consultant to chat about children and AMC.
  • A couple of non-medical speakers.
  • Motability are coming to talk about their scheme, and the help they can give you with driving in other ways as well.
  • A speaker from the Queen Elizabeth Foundation told us about the latest developments in access at airports, and onto and inside aircraft.

As usual, there was a discussion session and plenty of time to chat to other attendees.

The Family Weekend was heavily subsidised by TAG itself as the Trustees want to encourage as many of our members to attend as possible. 

 

More news about the weekend and photos coming soon!
