NASS Voices Newcastle

Find out what we have planned and how to book your place

We’d like to invite you to join us in Newcastle for our first NASS Voices community engagement event of 2020, to be held on Saturday, 10 October 2020 at the Copthorne Hotel, Newcastle.

We will kick off an exciting weekend of activities on the evening of 9 October, when we’ll be holding our ASone social evening. This is a chance to chat with other local people with an interest in axial SpA (AS) and to meet with the NASS team at an informal gathering. Make new friends, ask NASS those burning questions and enjoy your first drink on us!

On Saturday 10 October, we’ll move on to our NASS Voices event, featuring informative talks and discussions by Rheumatologists, Physiotherapists and members of the NASS team.

You can expect to take away:

  • Tips from the experts
  • Learn self-management techniques from your peers
  • Find out more about the latest research on AS
  • Leave better equipped and informed than you were when you arrived!

We look forward to welcoming everyone with an interest in axial SpA (AS) – you need not be a NASS member to attend.
