Drop-in for a chat

To mark WAD 2021 the National Aspergillosis Centre will hold a symposium for patients & carers. The theme is ‘Shortening the Patient Journey’ and we will hold a discussion on everyone’s journey to getting am aspergillosis diagnosis. We will try to identify how we can all help shorten the journey.

There will also be a chance to contribute to what the list of research aims as defined by patients and carers should be. We aim to get our researchers to add some of them to their projects.

The event will be held on Zoom and will be free to attend. If you would like to join us on the day, you can access the details via Facebook.
