Cardiff Members Meeting 30 Jan 2013

Cardiff CLL Support Association Members Meeting - Wednesday 30th January 2013 We would like to invite you to a CLLSA and UHW event at: The Henry Wellcome Building for Biomedical Research University Hospital of Wales (UHW) Heath Park Cardiff Wales CF14 4XN

CLLSA Meeting:  10.30am – 2.30pm

Normal and Malignant Lymphocyte Science Meeting: 2.45pm onwards

The University Hospital of Wales has provided the unique opportunity for us to partner with it and their annual Normal and Malignant Lymphocyte Scientific Meeting.  This year the early part of the day is given over to the CLLSA and we are fortunate to be supported by talks from Professor Fegan on CLL trials and new treatments, and by Dr Chris Pepper from research. After a complimentary lunch, CLLSA member and patient Julia Kennedy will be talking about her PHD CLL research project, studying the CLL patient and the internet.  Following questions and answers, those who wish to get on the road can do so and others may stay if they wish to enjoy the scientific talks. The first two will be CLL specific.


Members’ meetings allow all affected by CLL to spend time together and share their experiences, giving the opportunity to learn from each other and the expert speakers. This meeting affords the opportunity for interaction between the scientific, clinical and patient communities; allowing us all to benefit from this.  Details of how to get to the University Hospital are attached. 


Your early registration will help to ensure you gain a place as numbers are limited, and will allow us to plan catering. 

To reserve a please contact the trustees' Personal Assistant at , Telephone the Free phone membership line, 08009774396 and leave a message, or write to CLL Support Association, 39-40 Eagle Street, London, WC1R 4TH.
