About this Publication

Addison's Disease Self Help Group newsletter, issue 100, June 2010


Welcome to the summer 2010 newsletter. This issue is, first and foremost, about celebrating the achievements of our athletes. Three of our members – all with Addison’s – completed marathons in April, and we are so proud of them. You can read their stories on pages 3 – 5. This issue is also about recognising the achievements of the endocrine nurses who work to support people with Addison’s. You can read about the two nurses who won the ADSHG’s research awards at the March endocrine conference on pages 7 - 8.
