We are delighted this week to be hosting a fantastic information for Psoriasis sufferers in one of our many meeting rooms this week.
The Irish Skin Foundation and Novartis are bringing a panel of experts together to answer sufferers' questions on this topic on Wednesday November 9th beginning at 6:30pm.
On the night, each speaker will give a 5 minute introduction to their topic. Following this, you and fellow attendees will be divided into small groups at a round discussion table. The experts will move from table to table in rotation for a 20 minute Q&A session. This should allow for easy conversation and give you the chance to ask them questions about psoriasis, or just to listen, as you prefer. To avail of this invaluable opportunity, register today via the website www.irishskin.ie
