The meeting will be in the same format as normal patient meetings. There will be a mixture of medical information and a chance to meet and talk to fellow patients. Normally we have a question and answer sessions and a group discussion. We tend not to have a formal agenda as these meetings tend to flow naturally with the questions people ask.
Dr Andrew Dwyer will host the meeting. He is currently working at Boston College, having previously worked at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston and in Switzerland. We are hoping a couple of the specialists from MGH will be able to attend as well.
Normally we have between 15 to 20 people there of various ages. After the meeting, we normally have a dinner at a local restaurant somewhere.
Boston College is located in Newton, in the suburbs of Boston. It has its own station on the end of a Metro line, the journey normally takes about an hour from Logan airport or downtown Boston.
The meeting with be from 11 am to 4 pm.
