About this Publication

Addison's Disease Self Help Group newsletter, issue 117, September 2014


Welcome to the autumn 2015 newsletter. The AGM and medical lecture on 1 November will be our ADSHG “party” to celebrate 30 successful years as a support group for people with Addison’s and their families. This November also marks the 10th anniversary of our accreditation, as a charity formally registered with the Charity Commission. We will be celebrating that important milestone, too. There will be cake and balloons to go with the sandwich lunch at 1pm, which will be followed at 2pm by the 12th annual general meeting and 13th medical lecture of the ADSHG.
