Each year, the CMT UK community gets together at its annual conference to learn, share, meet and have fun.

This year, we will be hosting our first ever virtual conference, the CMT UK Conference 2021.

Come join us!  Everyone is welcome. 

About the Conference

The conference will take place over two days and we have some great speakers lined up from around the globe!

Here are some of the speaker highlights:

  • Professor Mary Reilly, CMT UK patron and Professor of Neurology at UCL Queen Square Institute of Neurology will be giving an update on diagnosis and potential therapies, as well as answering any questions you may have.
  • Marina Kennerson, Professor of Neurogenetics/ Neurosciences at NZAC Research Institute and Sydney Medical School will be talking about how DNA can contribute to CMT.
  • Imelda Hughes, Consultant Paediatric Neurologist at Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital, will be talking about CMT symptoms in children and the differences between CMT types.
  • Wendy Foo, Occupational Therapist at Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital will talk about everyday life with CMT and how occupational therapy can help.

 

Plus, join Karin Rodgers from CMT Kids for an update and Q&A, find out about a research project CMT UK has contributed to and ask our sponsors about their CMT-friendly products and services. You can also join our live quiz on Saturday evening for a fun round-up to the conference!
