2nd Adolescent Rheumatology Symposium - 28th January 2016!

Our Symposium was attended by 170 people and sessions included talks on imaging, management of rheumatic disease in young people, and young person involvement in research.
Our Young Person Representatives, Cat and Phoebe gave emotive powerful speeches on being young people with a rheumatic disease. They spoke about the difficulties and realities of everyday life, thoughts on research, how they were inspired to study medicine and become representatives for other young people. They also spoke about how involving patients in research development not only improves quality of research conducted but also empowers young people to ensure their voice is heard and meaningful differences made.

Royal visit to the Centre - 12th February 2015!

Her Royal Highness, The Duchess of Cornwall, today visited teenagers with arthritis at the Centre in her capacity as Patron of the charity Arthritis Research UK. During the visit, The Duchess of Cornwall was shown immune cells in a microscope as part of a project defining how puberty and stress can affect the immune system and MRI scans which show how the progress of arthritis in teenagers is different to that of adults. She also had the opportunity to meet young people who have worked with researchers to develop support and information services for other young people with arthritis.
