This was a very enjoyable day and it was fantastic to hear from such a diverse range of speakers, as well as many willing attendees who shared their own perspectives. We really enjoyed the day and the feedback has been very positive.

There was some delicious freshly baked cookies to start the day, followed by some fantastic talks! We would like to thank Helen Stevens, Dr Jackie Farquharson and Dr Helen Bows for sharing their expertise.
