People in Northern Ireland invited to join MDUK’s Information Day

MUSCULAR Dystrophy UK is inviting people in Northern Ireland to join their in-person information day for adults living with muscle wasting and weakening conditions.

The free event will take place on Thursday 5 October 2023 and is organised by the leading charity for more than 110,000 children and adults in the UK living with one of over 60 muscle wasting and weakening conditions.

The day will cover practical information supporting individuals living with a muscle wasting or weakening condition. Participants will have the chance to network with others from the Northern Ireland community and share their experiences. The event also provides an opportunity to hear from a range of speakers, including a Neuromuscular Clinical Nurse, Physiotherapist, and Disability Sports Northern Ireland, plus a mindfulness session will be run by ImmeasurableMinds and much more.

Claire O’Hanlon, MBE, Chair of the Muscular Dystrophy UK Northern Ireland Council, and a peer support volunteer for the charity, will be attending the day. Claire’s son Luke was diagnosed with Duchenne muscular dystrophy in 2012 (aged 13 months) and the family, from Dungannon, work tirelessly to fundraise to support vital research and campaign to make a change amongst the muscle wasting and weakening community.

Claire said:

“We’re delighted to be able to host a Muscular Dystrophy UK information day in Northern Ireland. We look forward to welcoming the community to what will be a great opportunity to gain useful insights and meet other people living with muscle wasting and weakening conditions, so please reserve your space today.”
