About this Publication

Addison's Disease Self Help Group newsletter, issue 112, June 2013


The most important message in this issue is here on the front page: we want everyone to participate in our emergency survey! In a new venture for the group, the questionnaire is a web-based format, using software provided by SurveyMonkey. This has the advantages of being much cheaper than a printed questionnaire, and means we get instant updates on the running totals as more people log in to take part.
