Come and meet us at our regional conference

Exeter Racecourse – Saturday 21 September 2019, 10am – 4pm

Each regional conference programme is tailored to local interests and issues affecting people
with MND, so content may vary. However, typically, they will include the opportunity to
hear and ask questions about the latest care services and support available and the most up to date information about research.

There will also be an opportunity to sample innovative products and services offered by exhibitors and, most importantly, plenty of time to talk to MND Association staff, volunteers and meet other people affected by MND.

Lunch and refreshments are provided during the day and free parking is available at the venue.

There is no fee to attend our regional conference.
