Join us for Members Day 2021

Saturday 12 June 2021

"Time to Connect, Join us at Members Day 2021. Together we can learn to live well with axial SpA."

It’s time to reconnect with friends. Join us for the NASS annual Members Day at the QEII Conference Centre.

This year, for the first time, you can either join us in person or online.

The day will be packed full of speakers who will offer advice and ideas on how to live well with axial SpA. It will also be an opportunity for you to meet others who live with the condition and share experiences.

We’re confident that the day will give you new ideas and tools that will empower you to tackle the challenges of living with the condition.

Interested in diet and axial SpA (AS)? We are delighted that one of the first speakers to be announced is Professor Matthew Brown from Kings College in London, talking about the role of gut microbiome in axial SpA and his latest research.

Want to attend in person? Get in early as we have a limited number of tickets due to on-going Covid-19 restrictions. But don’t forget that the whole programme will be delivered online, so you don’t have to miss out.

Our AGM will be on the same day and details will be shared with members separately. Read the full programme here.

Join us, raise spirits and voices, to help ensure that everyone can live well with axial SpA.

Register today with a £10 refundable deposit online to save a place for yourself plus a guest. When we have received your deposit we will be in touch to get more details, including if you are attending online or in person.
