Addison's Disease Self Help Group newsletter, issue 116, June 2014


Welcome to the summer 2014 newsletter. This autumn marks our 30th anniversary, and we will be duly celebrating with cake and balloons at the 1 November AGM and medical lecture. The ADSHG wears its history with pride, and can boast an impressive growth from humble beginnings, as you can read in the President’s column on page 2. We will be toasting Deana, our founder and President
– and the future success of her little group – on 1 November at the AGM.
