Addison's Disease Self-Help Group newsletter, issue 132, June 2018

Welcome to the summer 2018 edition of the ADSHG newsletter. This issue has a special travel and holidays feature with lots of helpful tips and reminders for making the most of your holidays, including guidance about the EHIC. Friends and ADSHG members pay tribute to former trustee Sue Chambers, who sadly ended her struggle with leukemia at Easter. Following the introduction of the GDPR in May, learn how we are protecting your data and how you can check and update your accounts details online. Additionally, we report on Addison's Ireland, fundraising events, social meetings and ambulance awareness.
