They take place in either local community halls or private homes, and follow an open agenda, with the opportunity to meet and talk with others over tea, coffee and cake. Where possible, an endocrine nurse from a nearby hospital joins the meeting to lead injection practice and answer questions.

  2. The ADSHG annual general meeting and medical lecture are held at the same event in London each year, usually late spring or early summer. This event is a great opportunity to meet other people with Addison's while also learning more about the condition.
