HMSA Masterclass Family Programme @ The Village Urban Resort
Sep 6 @ 9:45 am – 4:00 pm
The HMSA is running a FREE self-management and information day in Maidstone, Kent. The event is open to all people with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome of all subtypes, Marfan syndrome, Osteogenesis Imperfecta, Stickler syndrome and the most common of all hypermobility syndromes Joint Hypermobility Syndrome. The programme is being led by qualified health and social care professionals. The programme is run simultaneously and separately for adults/parents and children. All delegates will be able to have a free swim during the course of the day to reflect the need for activity and fun to be part of day to day management of the syndromes. All children/young people will leave with a delegate bag. The HMSA asks for a £5 per person deposit which is REFUNDABLE on the day of the event at the door. This is just a requirement to give us an idea of catering needs. The programme is completely free as it is supported by a grant from Jeans for Genes. For more information please contact Jenny Parris, HMSA Education Development Coordinator and qualified School Nurse by clicking here . Spaces are limited to 75 so please book early to avoid disappointment.
