Newcastle Members Conference July 2019

Fifty members attended the fourth of this year’s four scheduled conferences. It was held at the Life Science Centre, Newcastle upon Tyne.  The conference included a CLLSA update and member workshop.

The conference opened with members sharing their honest and moving personal CLL journeys, starting with Bethan Cawley:
