Winter Season 2022

Hello to all our AGSD-UK Supporters

Today a new video has gone live on our YouTube GSDScreen which features the new CEO of the charity, Val Buxton. As well as Val introducing herself to you all, she tells us about the next exciting thing coming up for the charity, which is our Winter Season 2022. We had our first Winter Season at the beginning of 2021 which was in place of our face-to-face conference. Due to its great success, we will be holding the season again over the month of January 2022. We again will be releasing videos on every Monday of January which will include presentations from Medical Professionals and Patient Stories. They will cover topics for Pompe, McArdle’s and Hepatic GSDs. This year we will also be uploading ‘Videos for all’ which will cover more general topics that you will hopefully find interesting and informative. Please follow the link below which will take you to Val’s announcement video on our YouTube channel: Val’s announcement videoAs well as the presentations, we will also be running events throughout January.
