Conferences – UK and international

We hold an annual conference for those affected by GSD and their families, doctors researchers and other medical professionals. We also attend and support international conferences on GSD.

The AGSD-UK holds an Annual Conference which usually takes place over a weekend in the autumn, based  at a hotel. The programme is from midday on a Saturday to after lunch on Sunday.

The programme normally includes a main speaker on a topic relevant to all, news and updates, the association’s AGM and, most importantly, workshops on the various GSD variants. A creche is provided. Members also appreciate the opportunity for a social get-together on the Saturday evening.

AGSD-UK members have expressed a preference for the Annual Conference to be held in a different part of the country each year, so this is what the Trustees endeavour to achieve.
