Information events

 

This is an example of one of our Information Events

Our information events are held regularly with professional and informative speakers at The Pavilion, Open University, Milton Keynes, MK7 6AA. See the Find us page for directions. These events are held each March, June, and October.

 

They provide an opportunity to meet with others who have a thyroid condition. We always have professional speakers with a health related background. They are usually drawn from the local hospital and community health services.

 

 

Meetings begin with registration and coffee at 10:30 followed by the guest speaker. We always aim to finish by 13:00.

 

A voluntary donation of £2.00 is requested to cover the cost of room hire.

At our next information event, we will be joined by guest speaker Dr Asif Malik Humayun, Consultant Physician in Diabetes & Endocrinology at Milton Keynes University Hospital, NHS Foundation Trust. His primary areas of interest include thyroid disorders and reproductive endocrinology. His clinical practice includes all aspects of diabetes and endocrinology including pituitary and adrenal disorders, Addison’s disease, bone and parathyroid disorders and the management of type 1 and type 2 diabetes. Dr Humayun believes in evidence-based medicine but also believes that patient education, especially in chronic conditions like thyroid disorders and diabetes, is a very important component in the management of these long-term conditions.
