Attendees will hear from the charity about advice and support services on offer and from experts on topics including emotional and mental wellbeing, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, education, self-directed support and real-life experiences.

Jacqueline Munro, Head of Regional Support, Outreach, and Information at Muscular Dystrophy UK said:

“We’re delighted to be able to host the Muscular Dystrophy UK’s Scottish Conference and we look forward to welcoming people from across Scotland. It will be a great opportunity to gain useful insights and connect with other people in the muscle-wasting and weakening community, to share stories, experiences, tips and advice. Secure your place by signing up now.”

The event will run 9.30am – 5.00pm at Forth Valley College, Stirling Campus, Stirling, FK8 1SE. Spaces are limited, so sign up today: musculardystrophyuk.org/ScottishConference
