We are looking forward to the upcoming ALS/MND Meetings on 4-9 December at The Convention Centre Dublin.

Ask The Experts: 5 December 2016, 14:30-16:30 GMT
Liffey Hall 2, Convention Centre Dublin

Every year, we invite the host association to organize a free, open Ask The Experts event, which allows local people living with ALS/MND and their carers to hear from experts and then ask questions in an open forum. This year, the IMNDA has invited 3 prominent experts in the field of ALS/MND research to give presentations to our audience: Dr. Jeremy Shefner, Dr. Jonathan Glass and Dr. Jan Veldink. View this year’s agenda here.

This event is FREE, and no registration is required. If you can’t be there in person, you can live-stream or watch the recorded video after the event. If you join us “live” online, you can also ask questions via Twitter by tagging @alsmndalliance
