Once again, we're taking our Annual General Meeting (AGM) online whilst we allow members to adjust to the changing pandemic roadmaps and implications.

We've taken this opportunity to run a mini conference alongside the AGM, including Q&As with our medic trustees, group sessions on emergency injections, emotional wellbeing and exercise as well as hearing updates from the ADSHG team on the last year and aims for the next. From research updates to stories from the Addison's community, we hope you can join us at our annual ADSHG event! Please note this is a members-only event, so if you aren't already, please sign-up as a charity member before registering your space at the AGM.

Here's what you can expect from our AGM 2021 event!

Alongside the official business of our charity's AGM, we're welcoming two Endocrine Consultant Specialists who will be presenting on:

  • Dr Helen Simpson - Understanding the basics of Addison's disease.
  • Dr Georgina Russell - Managing Addison's in the future: "Can we re-think glucocorticoid replacement". Dr Russell will be discussing her research into novel techniques to monitor cortisol levels continuously whilst carrying out everyday activities. Through improving our understanding of normality and characterising the pitfalls of current treatment options we can devise new personalised treatment strategies for glucocorticoid replacement.  

We'll also have three breakout sessions where you can talk in smaller groups with:

  • Professor John Wass, discussing exercise and adrenal insufficiency.
  • Dr Steve Kell, discussing emotional wellbeing and balancing stress with adrenal insufficiency.
  • Lisa Shepherd, who'll be helping you prepare and practise with your hydrocortisone emergency injection.

It's all happening on:

  • Saturday 19th June from 1pm UK (BST) time.

Members will have received their invitation and more information directly to their inboxes or letterboxes. If you haven't received this email, please check your Junk Folder or visit our online forum post to RSVP.

We're looking forward to welcoming you to our AGM 2021!
