In Previous News by Paul Townend

On July 17th, representatives from Vasculitis U.K. were invited to join 100 doctors, on a Vasculitis Renal and Respiratory Training Day at Imperial College in London. It’s the the first training day of this type to be held in London.

The medical speakers were all leaders in their field. Topics included ANCA Associated Vasculitis diagnosis and treatment for MPA and GPA, all aspects of EGPA, Anti GBM Goodpastures, respiratory complications of GPA including ANCA negative GPA and the role of steroids for treating Vasculitis.

The finale of the day were accounts by Jayne Hardman and Emma Smith of their personal experiences/stories of GPA and EGPA.

Hopefully this will be the first of many. Both Jayne and Emma were amazing and were thanked by the doctors who organised the training day for being there.
