18/19 November 2017. Fibrous Dysplasia Support Society Annual Conference

This highly successful meeting attracted participants from America, Italy, Spain, Ireland, Israel, Wales, Scotland and, of course, England. It was lovely to meet some of you over the weekend, and we hope you felt it was worthwhile. Several presentations were delivered throughout the weekend, and 33 family/patient consultations were arranged with Drs Collins, Boyce and Stanton. The success of the meeting can be gauged by the large number of appreciative comments we have received, some of which are listed here.

Dr Collins asked for the following message to be posted to all those who attended the meeting:

Dear FDSSUK meeting attendees,
Jamie (Watson) has passed on to me your gratitude for my attending your meeting. I would like to say that it was a privilege to share, what has to a large extent been my life's work, with such an amazing group of people. I think I speak for all the doctors when I say that we found you to be an amazing group of people – the strength, resilience, and love the patients, families, and loved ones have for each other was on clear display and nothing short of inspirational! It was an honour to be part of such an amazing and successful event.
       Sincerely,  Michael Collins
