About this Publication

Addison’s Disease Self Help Group newsletter, issue 129, September 2017


Welcome to the autumn 2017 edition of the ADSHG newsletter. This issue announces the arrival of the Addison’s cookery book, a enticing collection of healthy recipes compiled by Sue Chambers, with the story of how it came together. Our central feature reflects on June’s successful and enjoyable annual general meeting and medical lecture. Additionally, we report on the latest drug news, ambulance awareness and the ADSHG medical research grant, as well as the launch of the upgraded website.


This issue of the newsletter also contains the 2017 Christmas catalogue order form insert (included as an extra download file here), highlighting items – including those all-important stocking fillers – available to purchase from our online shop.
