Put Your Questions to the Doctor

On February 15th at 5pm LCTF is holding a special Vasculitis webinar to concentrate on diagnosing vasculitis earlier. Our presenter, Paul Murricane will interview Grant Currie on Lauren’s journey with Wegener’s Granulomatosis. Paul will also interview ITV’s Dr Hilary Jones, Health Editor on Daybreak, on how to diagnose vasculitis earlier. The webinar is designed to raise more awareness of vasculitis and how we can identify it earlier.

In some cases a late diagnosis can cause damage and those not getting correctly diagnosed can face more serious conditions. Dr Hilary will discuss the early signs, symptoms and treatments. The webinar series has been an excellent channel for broadcasting Vasculitis across the globe to those suffering from the disease. It has been fortunate to attract a high calibre of speakers and we are grateful to Dr Hilary Jones for taking part and helping to build the awareness.

Dr Hilary Jones has a remarkable medical past, having qualified as a medical doctor in 1976 and three years later, being the only medical officer for a small group of islands in the South Atlantic, Tristan De Cunha. Dr Jones later qualified as GP, using his medical expertise on ITV’s GMTV, later to be known as Daybreak, as a health advisor. Dr Jones also appears on BBC Radio 2 with Steve Wright in a similar role. With a high caliber of charity work and published medical works, he has a key interest in health promotion and recognises the importance of spreading awareness.

Be part of the interactive audience and put your questions and experiences directly to the doctor. If you have any queries, questions of concerns with regard to vasculitis then this webinar offers the opportunity to get answers, directly from our medical professional panel.

If you are unable to attend the online conference, it will later be posted on the LCTF here: https://www.thelaurencurrietwilightfoundation.org/webinar3
