About this Publication

Addison's Disease Self Help Group newsletter, issue 115, March 2014


Welcome to the spring 2014 newsletter. The ADSHG turns 30 in autumn this year, marking the auspicious season when Deana Kenward, our President, began contacting everyone who had responded to her little “ad” in the Radio Times. This autumn it will also be 10 years since the ADSHG’s application was approved by the Charity Commission and we became a registered charity. We have come a long way in those three decades and have a lot to celebrate.
